Engineering students are advised by engineering faculty members. Students are assigned an advisor by their engineering departments.
Each entering first-year student is encouraged to attend KU’s summer New Student Orientation. At the summer orientation program, students are advised on course selection for the fall semester and given the opportunity to enroll. Students who cannot attend the orientation program confer with their advisors a day or two before classes start.
Each semester before enrollment, students see their faculty advisors to plan schedules and discuss academic and career interests. Advising holds are placed for all students each semester; once a student has met with an advisor, the hold is released. Students are encouraged to call on their advisors any time during the school year if they wish to change their schedules or discuss other matters. Consultation with an advisor is recommended before making schedule changes.
Undecided engineering majors are advised in the Office of the Dean, 1 Eaton Hall, 785-864-3881.
Graduate advising generally is done at the department and program level. Graduate students should contact the director of graduate studies in their department or program.
