Semester Planning Appointment Email Schedule

It is very important to plan in your advising appointment in advance of your registration access time. See below for the expected dates you will receive an email from your advisor providing you with a link to schedule a semester planning appointment. It is important to know that emails from your advisor will go to your @rams.colostate.edu email account. If you do not check this email often, be sure to have it forwarded to your personal email so you are receiving their emails in a timely manner. You can find information and a step by step process to forward your emails on the ENS website.

**IMPORTANT** Advising codes are required for all Mechanical Engineering undergraduate students. An advising code is a 6 digit number that is required to register for a particular semester. The only way you will obtain your advising code is when you meet with your advisor for your semester planning meeting for the upcoming semester. Please note that advising codes are not sent via email nor can they be released during drop-ins.

Once you’ve scheduled your appointment, what now?
Once you have made your appointment you should do a couple of things before coming in to see your advisor.

  1. Review your Degree Progress Audit. The Degree Progress Audit is the degree audit tool used for verifying that students have met or are in progress with their University core curriculum (AUCCs) and/or major and minor curriculum requirements. The audit enhances degree and program planning with a dynamic report showing the courses required for all declared majors and/or minors as well as how all transfer and CSU courses count towards a specific degree. You can find a link to this on the homepage of your RamWeb account.
  2. Come with questions. Your advisor is here to help with not only curriculum and scheduling, but they can help educate you on university, college, and department policies and resources like tutoring and student organizations, as well as co-op and study abroad opportunities and how that may affect your graduation plan.

Lastly, to make things easy and convenient for the student, on the day of your appointment when you arrive there is no need for you to check in with your advisor to let them know that you are there. You can relax and have a seat in the advising waiting area and your advisor will come out to get you.
