Academic Advising

In addition to consulting their assigned advisors, all undergraduate students in the College are strongly encouraged to use the services of the College Center for Advising Services throughout their college careers. The professional advisors in this office assist students in arranging their programs, suggesting courses, obtaining faculty advisors, and making the unavoidable paperwork as simple as possible. Questions concerning the Rochester Curriculum (including majors, minors, and clusters), the “Take Five” Scholars Program, the KEY Program, and preparation for the health professions are answered. The University Tutoring Program Office and Orientation Program Office are located in the Center. Immediately adjacent, in 312 Lattimore, the Academic Services Counter serves as a focal point for satisfying quickly many routine academic inquiries, for dropping and adding courses, for making immediate appointments or walk-in arrangements to see an academic advisor, and for providing fast referrals to other offices.

Edmund A. Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences

The Dean’s Office in 301 Lattimore Hall assists students with course changes, summer school approval, preparation for graduate and professional study, independent study and special courses, and academic petitions.

The Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences assigns faculty advisors to each known prospective engineering and applied sciences student in the first year to provide information about different engineering and applied sciences fields and to help students plan and review course schedules and degree programs. The Dean’s Office coordinates the advising process, and every attempt is made to match advisors with individual interests and needs.

All courses in the school are taught by full-time faculty members with professorial rank or by part-time faculty members with the rank of professor or lecturer. In courses that have more than 25 students, student teaching assistants may aid the professor in supervising laboratory sessions, running regularly scheduled problem sessions, or grading homework.

Other Schools

The Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development offers advising and information assistance related to programs in education through its Student Services and through faculty of the school.
