Advising Requirements

The JB Speed School of Engineering Academic Advising office provides academic advising for current and prospective undergraduate students majoring in engineering. Students will be required to sign-up for academic advising prior to registration. The following students are required to be advised:

  • Students who have earned fewer than 60 credit hours

  • Students who have not been admitted to their major department

    Undergraduate Students:

    All students who entered Speed School during or after fall 2012 or were admitted into Mechanical, Industrial, or Computer Engineering/Computer Science prior to fall 2012 are required to be advised by an advisor in the Engineering Student Services Center every fall/spring semester -- students will be unable to register for classes until cleared by an advisor.

    Advising appointments for registration should be made in the lower level of the J.B. Speed Building. Advising office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For further information about academic advising in the School of Engineering, call 502-852-8084 or send an email to ssadvise@louisville.edu.

    All other students who entered Speed School prior to the Fall 2012 semester will continue to see their current departmental advisor. Appointments can typically be made at the departmental offices between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

    Graduate Students:

    Newly admitted graduate level students in all engineering departments are encouraged to consult with an advisor before they first register for graduate level courses. The department of Bioengineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Engineering and Computer Science, and Electrical and Computer Engineering require all of their Master of Engineering, Master of Science and PhD students to be advised.

    Advising Availability

    Advising is available by appointment only.

    Who Is My Advisor?

    Upon admittance to the Speed School, you will be assigned an advisor. Your advisor will introduce you to a range of services provided by the School, and will guide and support you as you advance through the general engineering curriculum.

    Students admitted to their departments or Professional School are expected to meet with their faculty or departmental advisor each semester, unless otherwise instructed, for class registration approval.
