Advising Information


How often should I meet with my advisor?

We suggest that you meet with your advisor regularly, at least once a semester, to receive assistance with major selection, schedule planning, utilizing MSU resources, career planning and much more!  Anytime you may have an academic question you should contact your advisor, while some questions can be handled by email, many issues benefit from a face-to-face conversation.

How should I prepare for my advising appointment?

Before visiting your advisor, you should:

  • Reflect on how you are doing in your classes.
  • Review the degree program requirements for the majors that interest you.
  • Think about any questions you might have about your major, the College of Engineering, or the University.
  • During annual enrollment (in the spring) think about classes you might be interest in taking during the summer and next year.  Click here (.doc) and print the schedule planning worksheet to help you plan your future academic schedule.

Your advisor is assigned to you based on your major and class standing (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior). If you're a member of the Honors College, you will have a specific advisor for that program in addition to your College of Engineering advisor.


New Student Orientation Information


Our academic advisors look forward to meeting each one of you at New Student Orientation (NSO)!  There, you will be able to meet with us individually to address your immediate concerns and resolve many issues on the spot.  In addition to helping formulate your first year of classes, our professional staff will also give an overview of the College of Engineering -- including the many services and opportunities you will find as a Spartan Engineering student.

For most of you, NSO will be the first of many ongoing meetings with your academic advisor.  You will begin the process of working together with us to set goals for your academic, professional and personal life.  It is our belief that the College of Engineering and Michigan State University will change your life for the better if you set strong goals and strive to achieve them.  You are in charge of this process, and we are here to encourage you in whatever way we can.

The Handbook for Engineering Students for Fall 2020 (.pdf) is a reference guide to familiarize freshman and transfer students with the College of Engineering at Michigan State University.

The New Student Orientation website, http://orientation.msu.edu/, will give you more information and help you get ready for orientation.
