Academic Advising Basic Information 

The College of Engineering has a formal advising process designed to keep students on track in the curriculum and help them resolve any problems they encounter.

When students formally enter Mechanical Engineering (generally at the end of their freshman year) they are assigned a faculty adviser. They will need to meet with their adviser each semester prior to registration (a registration block is placed making advising mandatory).

Students, including freshmen not yet in the College of Engineering, can also see the ME Undergraduate Program Director (Dr. Warren Waggenspack) at any time with advising questions.

For questions about humanities, please see one of the College of Engineering counselors (Audubon Sugar Institute Building, South Stadium Drive, 225-578-5731). They stay up to date on the latest approved courses and rules.

For questions on course transfers, course substitutions, prerequisite waivers, and for Senior Checkout, see the ME Undergraduate Program Director.
