Advising

The Engineering Student Services Center, in the lower level of the J.B. Speed Building, is the academic resource center for all Speed School students. The advising staff is a team of professional academic counselors who provide assistance in planning programs of study, coordinate registration of courses, and provide guidance and referral services. While your academic advisor will make every effort to guide you throughout your education, students are ultimately responsible for developing a familiarity of and adherence to University, college, and departmental policies and procedures.

All students who entered Speed School during or after the fall 2012 semester are required to be advised by an advisor in the Engineering Student Services Center – 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.

All students who entered Speed School prior to the fall 2012 semester will continue to see their current advisor. The Departments of Bioengineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Engineering and Computer Science, and Electrical and Computer Engineering require all of their students to be advised. In these departments, it will be necessary for an academic advisor to set an advising code to clear the student for registration. Newly admitted students to the Chemical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering departments are required to meet with an advisor for the semester they are admitted to the department. Chemical Engineering students with more than 45 hours and Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering students with more than 60 credit hours are not required to meet with an advisor in subsequent terms, but are strongly encouraged to do so. All students on academic warning or probation are required to see an advisor regardless of credit hours completed. Appointments can typically be made at the departmental offices between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
