Faculty Advising

IEOR and ORMS undergraduate students are assigned to faculty advisors in the IEOR department. Before the enrolling period for each semester, students meet with their faculty advisors to discuss their tentative schedule of classes.

You need to prepare a tentative list of courses and degree check to bring it to the meeting.  Make an initial selection of courses and then during the advising session you will discuss your course selection for next semester with your faculty advisor to make sure:

  • You will be able to manage the course contents and the course load.
  • You take at least 2 appropriate technical courses and they must be taken for grade.
  • The number of units is higher than the minimum required (12 units if you are not working). (Note that normal progress requires 30 units of completed course work each year.)
  • Your whole curriculum is acceptable and that you are on schedule to graduate on time, i.e. you are not missing courses which would delay your graduation.
  • You choose the right technical electives based on your interests.
  • You get answers to questions regarding, grades, research opportunities, minors, job prospects etc.

After the advising process, you can register for courses through CalCentral at your designated appointment time.
