Advising for Engineering Graduate Programs

The ESSC serves all graduate engineering students. Our purpose is to:

  • assist graduate students in navigating the university, college, and departmental policies and procedures
  • connect students to campus and community resources
  • support student success with programs and services that address existing needs
  • help students stay on track to graduate

There are many offices on campus that serve graduate students as well as resources available both on campus and in our community.

Some of the common topics available through advising within our center are:

  • Probation / Disqualification
  • Forms and petitions
  • Graduate policies
  • Registration inquiries, e.g. enrollment in 1290R, holds, etc.
  • Leave of absence

There are also resources to assist you with:

  • Graduation - steps, candidacy, application deadlines and forms
  • Work experience, e.g. CPT/OPT
  • Career advising and development
  • Events for graduate students (CGS, Career Center, etc.)
