New students and transfer students:

  • New students to WSU and/or the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) Department are strongly encouraged to meet with the IME Department Chair, to discuss the program and the student’s interests related to the program.
  • All new students to WSU/IME, are required to meet with their academic advisor for initial enrollment into courses. During this appointment, information regarding the program, the university, tutoring, and student life will also be covered.
    • Students with AP, IB, CLEP, DANTES scores should bring copies of their results to this meeting, along with a copy of their final high school transcript if it has not already been submitted to the Registrar’s Office.

Continuing students:

  • A-L last names will meet with their IME faculty advisor each Fall Semester and then their academic advisor (must be completed prior to registering for Spring courses).
  • M-Z last names will meet with their IME faculty advisor each Spring Semester and then their academic advisor (must be completed prior to registering for Summer/Fall courses).
  • Each semester, students will meet with the academic advisor to enroll in courses.
  • Students may be excused from meeting with the academic advisor (only in the semester they are required to meet with their IME faculty advisor) if:

Students will be e-mailed when they have been cleared to enroll and the courses they are expected to take.
  • The academic advisor reserves the right to request an advising appointment with any students who meet the above criteria, where there is a concern regarding student’s academic success (sudden decrease in academic performance, concerns expressed from their course instructor, excess course withdraws, history of enrolling in non-advised courses, etc.).
