Advising

NOTE: Students who need their scheduling/advising flag lifted must interact with the faculty advisor. Also, please reach out to your academic department for information on general advising for Fall 2020.

The College of Engineering Student Services team will not host in-person appointments during the Fall 2020 semester but will assist students virtually by email, phone, or Zoom. If you would like to speak with a counselor, we encourage you to schedule an appointment via the Navigate Student app.

Navigate Student App

Schedule your appointment with a Student Services counselor by using the Navigate Student mobile app. Download it by searching "Navigate Student" in the App Store or Google Play. 

The Navigate Student mobile app will help you keep up with all of your responsibilities and puts all of your next steps in one place. It gives you a customized list of important deadlines and upcoming events, virtually creating a timeline for your success. You’ll always know when registration for classes will open, how to get involved in various events, where to find academic resources on campus, and how to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor directly from your phone.
