Undergraduate Advising


There are several different types of advisors available to Computer Science majors. Administrative advisors provide assistance with general issues related to the degree program, while faculty advisors can provide more detailed technical advice on courses, careers and the discipline in general. Additionally, peer advisors provide advice from the perspective of other students.

While advisors are always available to assist students with academic issues, students themselves are responsible for making certain that they understand and satisfy all requirements for graduation. Other useful resources students should investigate include

Administrative Advisors

Students should see an appropriate administrative advisor with questions about degree requirements, course prerequisites, degree audits, petitions, drop/add, general transfer credit evaluation, study abroad and for referrals to additional academic support services within the University.

Informal advising is also available from other students. This peer advising complements formal advising provided by administrative and faculty advisors.

  • Engineering Fellows

    Engineering Fellows is an honorary service organization consisting of a select group of academically successful, service-oriented undergraduate students of the College of Engineering and Applied Science who actively seek to promote academic excellence in the College through peer academic support. Each Fellow serves as a subject matter mentor in one or more areas in which they have a comprehensive understanding of the material. Activities of the Fellows include organized tutorials and review sessions for large courses, and scheduled times that they will be available to provide general academic advice and assistance.
