Coming Semester

Registration Begins







The COE Office of Advising requires that all undergraduates meet with their advisors each semester before enrolling in classes. Graduate students should meet with their academic advisors at the beginning of their first semester. We encourage you to visit your advisor and enroll early; however, we do offer extended hours in the weeks before the start of each semester to help meet your last-minute needs. Please see our hours and location for more information.
