MS Software Engineering Advising Schedule

MS Software Engineering advising sessions are for prospective, newly admitted, and current students. Sessions are held as group advising sessions. You do not need an appointment to attend but please join at the beginning of the advising period. Personal appointments are not given. Individual advising will be held after the group advising, as time permits and if you came at the beginning of the advising session.

Important Department Policies

​According to departmental policy, students are not permitted to enroll in more than four courses per semester, including CMPE294, CMPE298I, and MS project or thesis courses.  The four course limit is a departmental policy that will be enforced, resulting in students being dropped from excess courses. Also note that students on an F-1 visa must take no fewer than three courses (9 units) per semester or file for a Reduced Course Load with International Scholar and Student Services (ISSS).
