Academic Advising for Engineering Students
Find your advisor
Your advisor(s) is listed in the Student Center in My Akron and can be found in the “Advisor” box on the right side of the screen. Click “Details” to get contact information for your advisor.
Your faculty advisor should be listed first. If you do not have a faculty advisor listed, contact your department.
You can see your faculty advisor at any time. If you are a first-year student, you may see Mrs. Diane Burrowbridge in ASEC 225 as an additional resource. For upperclassmen, if you cannot reach your faculty advisor, please contact the second advisor listed (typically your Department Chair or Associate Department Chair).
Meeting with your advisor
Your advisor is a great resource to assist with scheduling, discussing career options, planning elective courses, and discussing minors. Advisors are available to help you and can answer your questions or point you to the proper resource on campus.
Most first-year engineering students will have a mandatory advising meeting prior to registration for the next semester. If you do not complete this requirement, a hold will be placed on your account preventing you from registering for the upcoming semester.
If you have questions, schedule a meeting with your advisor each semester prior to registering for classes to ensure you are staying on track. You can always schedule an appointment with your advisor if you need to talk – they are there to help you.
