Advising for Undergraduate CS Students

Advising Information

The CS Department advises sophomores, juniors, and seniors while freshmen are advised by first-year professional advisors in the College of Engineering, located in the Ralph G. Anderson Building (RGAN). The academic and career advising for Computer Science students is a continuous process.  Students can stop by anytime during the semester with questions related to their progress and other advising issues to speak with an Academic Adviser or Dr. J. W. Jaromczyk, Director of Undergraduate Studies. The advising process for scheduling Spring semester courses starts in early October, while the advising process for scheduling Summer and Fall semester courses starts in mid-March.

 Start your advising with the following First-Step Web advising form and follow the steps as instructed by the feedback from your submission.
