Hours & Location

Academic advisors are always available to help you plan your program of study, resolve problems and provide valuable career guidance. Engineering students are required to meet with their Academic Advisors at least once per semester. Here’s how to keep the process simple and easy:

  • Check your Gatorlink e-mail account. We’ll send a message to let you know holds have been placed.
  • Complete the Academic Planning assignments on your First Year Engineering Canvas page.
  • Check Student Self Service to determine your registration date.
  • See your advisor BEFORE your registration time. Don’t wait until the last minute.

Advance Registration Holds

Engineering students must meet with their academic advisors before they can register for classes. Registration holds will be lifted by the advisors. Plan to see your advisor well in advance of the registration time assigned to you. Honors students must have their holds removed prior to honors registration to register for honors classes.

First Year Advising

Holds will not be lifted by telephone or email.

No transient forms will be approved until you meet with your advisor
