Your faculty academic advisor is not able to approve transfer credits or register you in classes. Please direct those questions to Ms. Curry.
3. Registration is coming up. What do I need to do before I meet with my advisor?
Review the 4-year curriculum matrix and the breadth elective requirements and be familiar with the required courses. Visit UDSIS to see your degree progress and search the offered courses for the upcoming semester to find the courses and times they are offered. Check the advisement information, mark the courses that you have already taken, and plan the courses that you would like to take. Keep in mind that engineering courses are usually only offered once per academic year.
Contact Undergraduate Academic Advisor Ms. Jazmyn Curry (firstname.lastname@example.org) well in advance of your registration open date to make an appointment. If Ms. Curry is not available or if you have special circumstances, you can contact Associate Chairman for Undergraduate Education, Dr. Adam Wickenheiser, 110 Spencer Lab, or Assistant Dean Charles Shermeyer, College of Engineering, 141 DuPont Hall. Be on time for your appointment. It is your responsibility to make the changes suggested by your advisor.
4. I am having trouble registering for a class. Who do I contact?
For any questions on MEEG course registration, please contact the Mechanical Engineering Department Undergraduate Academic Advisor, Ms. Curry (email@example.com). For other courses, you need to contact the department from where that course is offered. If you are having trouble finding the appropriate departmental contacts in those departments, Ms. Curry can help direct you to the appropriate contacts in other departments.

6. What classes count toward Technical Electives?
7. Does Independent Study (MEEG 366 or MEEG 466) count as a Technical Elective?
MEEG 466 (Senior Independent Study) counts as a technical elective. In order for MEEG 366 (Junior Independent Study) to count as a tech elective, you will have to get the faculty you are working with to write a statement saying the content in the independent study is above level. You can then use that written statement to petition the ME faculty for approval. For any questions please contact the Associate Chairman for Undergraduate Education, Dr. Adam Wickenheiser.
8. How do I declare a minor?
9. How do I change my major to mechanical engineering?
Mechanical Engineering is a capacity-limited program. Please refer to the registrar’s website and check under student resources for details regarding a change of major for more information. To meet with the Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Academic Advisor to discuss your options, you can schedule an appointment by sending an e-mail to Ms. Jazmyn Curry (firstname.lastname@example.org) and requesting an appointment to discuss the ME program.
