Advising FAQs

Is advising required?

Yes. Advising is mandatory every semester and your advising hold will not be removed until you are advised.

How do I schedule an advising appointment?

You can schedule an appointment with your advisor directly through Connect. Log-in to Connect through https://my.charlotte.edu.

Is advising in person or online?

Both! The default is set for online appointments to allow maximum flexibility for students, but if you prefer to meet in person, please indicate that in the comments when scheduling your appointment.

I need to retake a class. Do I need permission?

If your final grade was an F, you can re-register for the class. If your final grade was a D, you need to contact your advisor to request a repeat authorization.

I need to retake a class I am currently taking. Can I register for it as soon as registration opens?

No. You need to wait for final grades to post before you can reregister for the class or be issued a repeat authorization.

How do grade replacements work?

Am I required to take all the intro Civil classes (Environmental, Transportation, Geotech and Structural Analysis) even though I am not interested in all areas of Civil?

Yes. All courses listed in the in the plan of study are required.

Do I have to attend the civil engineering FE review in ENGR 3295?

Yes. The FE review is required for all students whether or not you intend to take the FE and/or PE exams. If you do not complete all requirements for the FE review, you will receive an ‘I’ (Incomplete) for ENGR 3295, and be required to re-take the review during the following semester.

Which BSCE courses require a “C” or better for progression?

Click on the ‘Plan of Study Worksheet’ link for a quick summary of this information. All courses that require a ‘C’ or better are shown in red text. All prerequisite courses that require a ‘C’ or better are shaded in yellow.

What is the “critical path” in the BSCE curriculum for the Department?

Click on the ‘Curriculum Flow Chart’ link, which shows all required courses for the BSCE. All courses that require a ‘C’ or better are shaded in blue. All courses with a green dot lie on the ‘critical path’ in this curriculum. Failure to progress successfully through any of these courses will likely hold up your progression and cost you time to graduation. It is important that you place a priority on scheduling these courses as soon as you are able.

What is the difference between a “Design Elective” and a “CEGR Elective”?

The BSCE curriculum requires every student to complete two elective courses in two different technical areas that are design intensive (‘Design Electives’). A list of these courses if found under the Advising Tab. The BSCE curriculum also requires every student to complete at least two and up to four ‘CEGR Electives’. To satisfy this requirement, a student can take any CEGR course that is 3000 level or above. This requirement enables each student to acquire depth in an area of interest.

What is the “Early-Entry Master’s Program” and how do I apply if I am interested?

Admission requirements, continued enrollment requirements, and benefits of this program are outlined here: https://catalog.charlotte.edu/preview_program.php?catoid=32&poid=8497. If you are an undergraduate student who meets the admission requirements and you are accepted into this program, you can earn up to 9 credit hours of graduate level courses that can also be utilized to meet BSCE curriculum requirements at the same time. This means that you can double-count three courses for both undergraduate and graduate credit. This equates to a full semester of savings (time and money) as a graduate student.

Freshman Engineering Advising

All Freshman engineering students are advised by the Office of Student Development and Success (OSDS) in the College of Engineering until their core freshman engineering courses are successfully completed and they meet the progression requirements to enter their designated engineering department of choice. Freshman students should not contact their Department directly for advising. They must contact their OSDS advisor.

  • If you are a Freshman engineering student and need to ask advising questions, contact your OSDS advisor.
  • If you are an incoming Freshman engineering student, you can email coe-advising@charlotte.edu with general questions.
  • If you are already in the CEE Department and your advisor is Kristy Lowman (kristy.lowman@charlotte.edu) or Jessica Waldman (jlwaldma@charlotte.edu), please review the resources above and contact your academic advisor with any remaining general questions. You must schedule all advising appointments using CONNECT via https://my.charlotte.edu/.
