ME Faculty Advising for Spring 2017

Preparing for the Fall 2017 Semester

Phase I of Course Enrollment will begin April 17th.  Because we are still transitioning to a new student system, as an exceptional to our normal procedures, we are not requiring that you see your Faculty Adviser.  However, we still strongly recommend that you check in with them in-person.  Here are the details.


Individual Advising

Who: List of ME Faculty Advisor assignments for Fall 2018

Where: Faculty Offices

When:  During normal office hours starting on April 3rd unless your assigned adviser has given you alternate times.

What to Bring

To ensure that advising time is productive and that we can advise you properly, we cheerfully insist that you bring the following documents with you (you will not be advised without them):

- An unofficial transcript (from CalCentral)

- A copy of the ME curriculum (with your completed courses X'ed out)

- A completed ME Degree Check form

Graduating Seniors

Graduating Seniors and students who plan to graduate in Fall 2017 should make sure to do a Final Degree Check with your ESS Adviser in 230 Bechtel if you have not already done so.
