Advising Resources

Temporary Adjustments to Academic Advising Under COVID-19 Protocols, effective March 17, 2020, until further notice

  1. All advising will be conducted virtually as follows:
    • Scheduled advising appointments can be arranged by contacting either your assigned academic advisor, or, with your weekly availability and request to schedule an advising appointment.

Summer (Freshmen) Registration Advising

As a freshman at Illinois, you are required to attend summer registration either on campus or online. Throughout the day you will attend information sessions to help acquaint you with campus and The Grainger College of Engineering. You also will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor, and your AP test scores and placement test scores will be reviewed. Based on the review of scores, courses will be selected with your advisor and you will register for your fall semester courses in a student computer lab.

Semester Advising

Each semester you will meet with a staff advisor. During these meetings, you will discuss course planning, career plans, and other aspects of your academics and future. You will be notified via university email when advising begins and how to sign up. Failing to meet before registration begins will result in a hold on your account.
