Frequently Asked Questions
- Who is my adviser?
Your advisor is assigned based on your last name.
- How can I meet with my adviser?
- OFFICE HOURS: You do not need an appointment to visit with your adviser during office hours. During the first week and a half of classes your adviser will have their office hours posted outside their door. For office hours we will dedicate our time to addressing questions about the current semester only. This is designed to make sure that you are able to ask your adviser time-sensitive questions about this current spring semester.
- DROP-INS: View drop-in hours in the mechanical engineering office
- ADVISING APPOINTMENTS: Please e-mail your adviser to schedule an appointment to discuss at graduation planning, semester schedule planning, receive advising codes, and to talk through strategies for academic success.
- How do I get my advising code?
The only way to receive your advising code is during an advising appointment with your adviser. When you schedule an advising appointment, your adviser takes time to carefully review your records to make sure you are on track. Please note that drop-ins are not an opportunity to provide you with your advising code but instead to assist you with quick questions that may come up throughout the semester. Advising codes are not available via email, or a M.E.S.A. student mentor.
- If my adviser is not available, can I see one of the other advisers?
Yes, but only for general questions during drop-ins. If you have specific questions regarding your graduation plan it is best that you see your assigned adviser. They have your current student records and know more about your plan. Another adviser wouldn’t be able to adequately help you with issues regarding your graduation plan.
- How should I contact my adviser?
The best way to reach your adviser is via email. Calling may be more difficult as your adviser is most likely in a student appointment and cannot answer the phone.
