Advising Procedure for Students:

  2. Create a desired schedule based on the "Class Schedule Search" application provided by the Registrar. The Registrar plans to post the upcoming course schedule on the first day of the advising / pre-registration period.
  3. Determine your Advisor via the Academics tab (Academic Profile channel).
  4. Sign-up for a 15 minute Advising Appointment with your Advisor via the ECE Google Calendar Advising Appointment page.

  5. Discuss your course selections and any other advising issues with your Advisor.
  6. Following your advising appointment, your Advisor will provide your Alternate PIN and record the outcome of the meeting in the Notes section of your DegreeWorks record.
  7. If you need to follow up on an item listed in the Advising Referral Issues document above, then your Advisor will refer you to ECE Academic Program Coordinator, Ms. Joanette Catino, or another office, for further assistance.
If you cannot find an open appointment on your Advisor's calendar, then please send an email to ECE Academic Program Coordinator, Ms. Joanette Catino, or stop by her office, room 105 Siegel Hall. She will try to schedule an appointment with ECE Associate Chair, Prof. Saniie.
