Engineering freshmen receive academic advising for first semester course registration through participation in the University Freshmen Orientation Program. Visit the website below for details:


All first year students will be assigned a first year advisor, and will be transitioned to the College of Engineering once the requisite course work is complete.

What are the advising procedures for new Transfer engineering students?

Initial academic advising appointments for transfer students are conducted in the Engineering Deanís Office, listed above.

Transfer Credit Evaluation:
During an academic advising appointment, new transfer students will receive a transfer credit evaluation. Students should bring course descriptions, syllabi, and supporting materials for math, chemistry, physics, and engineering courses for transfer credit evaluation. These courses must be evaluated by the respective instructors using a Engineering Transfer Credit Evaluation Forms.

Course Registration:
Upon completion of a transfer credit evaluation, students are advised and registered for their first semester courses.

Transfer students are also invited to register for the CSU Transfer Orientation Program. Visit the website below for details:
