The academic advising program in the College of Engineering is designed to facilitate the student’s intellectual and personal growth, to assist students in using university resources, and to guide students in making informed choices regarding academic and career plans. Following admission to NDSU, each student is assigned an advisor from the college or department in which the student is majoring. If a major has not been declared, an assignment is made with an advisor in the Career and Advising Center.

Advising Resources

Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor throughout the year. Students with advisor holds are required to meet with their advisors before the hold is lifted. Advisor assignments and holds can be viewed on Campus Connection.

Degree Map is an interactive planning tool for students and advisors to plan a path to graduation. Degree Map works alongside the Academic Requirements Report within Campus Connection, so students can plan their class schedules, remaining requirements, and set academic and career goals to discuss with their academic advisor.
