Student advising is an important part of the collegiate education process. Academic advisors provide an integral part in shaping the student's education to meet the student's academic and career goals. Advisors play a critical role in student success and ensure the student is making satisfactory academic progress. Kansas State University's academic advising policy can be found here.
In order to provide a high-quality advising experience, the ECE department has a full-time academic advisor on staff. ECE faculty are involved in the advising process as well. All undergraduate students are required to meet with an advisor once a semester. This meeting ensures the student is making significant progress towards their degree program while also aligning courses with the student's interests. This is also a time for the student to seek counseling and advice regarding future plans and how to shape their coursework to ensure success in those areas.
