Undergraduate Advising

All BCME undergraduate students must see their Academic Advisor every semester before registering. Advising periods begin a few weeks before registration. Information about Advising and about Departmental events is communicated through the departmental Google Groups. All BCME students are encouraged to join the appropriate Google Group.

Undergraduates need to bring a copy of all transcripts from other colleges attended the first time they see an advisor. (Yes, even though you already had your transcripts mailed to the University, you still need to bring in an unofficial copy to your advisor.) You will not be allowed to register if we do not have a copy of your transfer transcripts on file in the departmental office.

Students should go to see the faculty during their office hours for advising.
