Undergraduate Advising

Advising Policy

All engineering students are required to be advised every semester until s/he has earned thirty (30) credits.

Freshmen should visit Engineering Advising Services to schedule an academic program planning session or learn about additional services.

After earning 30 credits, nuclear engineering students, in good standing, are required to meet with the NE advisor, Amanda Lovelace, yearly. Students are to be advised in either the fall or spring semesters, depending on the student ID number. Even ID numbers are advised in the fall, before spring registration and odd ID numbers are advised in the spring, before summer or fall registration. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule these meetings, when prompted by e-mail from the advisor.
