Be Prepared for Your Advising Session
- Check your degree audit for all completed and needed courses to verify that all information is accurate.
- Complete the Academic Planning Worksheet to organize your courses and to stay on track for graduation.
Students can submit questions to the MAE advisors online through the Virtual Advising Center (VAC).
- Requests MUST be made at least TWO business days in advance - we do not schedule same-day appointments.
- Submit requests for multiple days to allow for greater flexibility.
Note: Advisors will only wait 5 minutes for the student to join the meeting. If the student fails to attend, the student must submit a request for a new meeting.
*For ALL questions related to the BS/MS programs or the grad programs, please see here for graduate advising options.
(ALL advising requires an appointment)
Current and prospective students may also visit academic advisors by appointment in our EBU II, offices 169 and 180. See the guide below to help you in determining the best way to contact us.
