Advising the Volunteer Experience with the UT Academic Plan: Experience Learning, Career Exploration, and Self-Exploration.

Advising Policy

All engineering students are required to be advised every semester until they have earned thirty (30) credits.

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.
