Supplemental Advising

College of Engineering Academic Advising

Most freshmen and sophomore engineering students are advised by our five lower-division advisors. Students first meet their advisor at the Academic Orientation Program when they are admitted to Michigan State, and continue to see their lower-division advisor until they reach junior standing (56 credits). Biosystems Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Engineering Arts, Engineering Mechanics, Manufacturing Engineering, and Materials Science students see the upper-division advisor for their major beginning with their freshmen year. Engineering No-Preference students in the Honors College see Scott Keely for advising; students in the ROSES program see the ROSES advisor until they reach junior standing.

Junior-Senior Advising

Junior and senior students who are not in the Honors College are advised by a department advisor who specializes in the major. Honors College students are advised by faculty in the major department.
