BSSE Advising Information

Advisors are available throughout the academic semester to address student questions and concerns. Students can see their advisor during office hours or by scheduling an appointment.

Preregistration Advising:

Every semester a formal advising period is scheduled before the registration period. During the advising period, students must develop an Academic Plan using the Academic Planning Form provided by their advisor. Students will have an advising hold until their Academic Planning Form has been submitted to and approved by an advisor. Students may also schedule an (virtual or in-person) appointment with the Academic Advisor via CONNECT or email. Detailed instructions are sent out to students before the advising period in each semseter.

IMPORTANT: Students should NOT withdraw from required courses without first seeking permission from their advisor — doing so may delay their planned graduation date.

Students with special requests should submit the appropriate petition form:

Important Advising Notes:

  • A minimum “full-time” undergraduate load is defined as 12 credit hours per semester. Please consider an average semester load of 15 credit hours, when possible, to stay on track for graduation.
  • Students with good academic standing can enroll up to 18 semester hours without any permission. No student shall exceed 18 semester hours without special permission.
  • We emphasize the importance of good GPA (3.0 and higher) to get a good internship and a job later on.
  • Undergraduate students with at least 75 semester hours completed toward a baccalaureate degree with a GPA of 3.2 or higher may be admitted to the MS Engineering Management Program as an Early Entry student. Students interested in the Early Entry Program should schedule a meeting with the Program Director during the beginning of the semester when they are completing the 75 credits.
  • In addition to College and University requirements for continued enrollment, students must maintain a major cumulative GPA of 2.0 for all courses in the departmental curriculum taught by the College. Failure to meet this requirement for two consecutive semesters will result in suspension from the College of Engineering. The BSSE Academic Planning Form (spreadsheet) shared with you computes both the overall and major GPA which will help in the advising process.
  • Students in the engineering programs may take a course in their curriculum a maximum of two times, including withdrawing from the course with a grade of W. Failure to achieve a satisfactory grade in a course to progress in the program within the two allowed attempts will result in suspension from the engineering program.

Please contact your advisor for further advising questions. If you have general procedural questions or feedback, feel free to contact the ISE program office.

Wishing you all a great advising period and a semester.
