Engineering Advising Process

Every engineering student will meet with a college representative each semester to go over their degree plan and get permission to enroll.

Are you a brand new engineering student? You'll need a Shocker Connection appointment. During this appointment, you will meet with your department chair or program coordinator to learn more about the program, discuss career options, and choose first semester coursework.

Please call us at 978-3420 to get that appointment setup. When you come, use this step-by-step Shocker Connection Guide to help you enroll.

Current engineering students will meet with a Student Academic Success Advisor each semester and a faculty adviser once a year

Each semester, schedule an appointment with a Student Academic Success Advisor to:

  • Plan your upcoming semester schedule
  • Get cleared to enroll
  • Register in classes

Contact Engineering Student Success Center at (316) 978-3420 or engineering.records@wichita.edu to schedule a registration appointment.

Once a year, schedule an appointment with a faculty adviser to discuss:

  • Career plans
  • Technical electives
  • Engineer of 2020
  • Minors
  • Cooperative education

Find your faculty adviser using myWSU. Email your adviser to make an appointment. Contact them at least one week in advance. 

Be prepared for your advising session by:

Seniors within 2 semesters of graduation must file an online Application for Degree (AFD) through myWSU. Students will receive instructions to schedule an appointment with their department chair or program coordinator for a mandatory Senior Check appointment. The Senior Check replaces regular semester advising. 

Each semester the College of Engineering allows students who are in good academic standing, and meet the below criteria to opt-out of an in-person appointment with their Registration Professional. Please review the criteria below to see if you qualify for this exception. If you meet the criteria below, you have the option to submit the online form. Once the form has been processed (typically, 3-5 business days) you will receive an e-mail outlining the next step in your registration process.
Online release criteria:

  • Completed at least 24 hours at WSU
  • Have a cumulative and WSU GPA of 2.5 or greater
  • No recent F’s
  • Not a graduating senior (i.e. – 90 hours toward degree completed and graduating Spring 2014, Summer 2014, or Fall 2014)
  • Not missing documented transfer credit
  • No holds
  • Demonstrated academic/registration responsibility
  • Not on academic probation

Students who DO NOT meet the criteria above and submit an online request will be denied and required to schedule an in-person appointment with a Student Academic Success Adviser.

If you have any questions, please contact the Engineering Student Success Center at 316-978-3420 or engineering.records@wichita.edu.
