In Spring 2013, the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology (CEET) implemented a hybrid advising model and formed the Central Advising Office (CAO). The CAO provides academic advising for all CEET students who have not yet met the Academic Success Marker for their major.
For engineering (ELE, ISYE and MEE) majors, that means they will be advised in the CAO until they pass MATH 230 with a C or better. TECH majors are advised in the CAO until they pass MATH 110 with a C or better.
Once a student passes the appropriate level of math for their major, they will be transferred to the major department, where they will receive advising from a faculty member for the remainder of their academic career at CEET.
If you are an ELE, ISYE or MEE major who has not yet passed MATH 230 with a C or better, or you are a TECH major who has not yet passed MATH 110 with a C or better, call 815-753-8024 to set up an advising appointment.

The Academic Requirements Report (formerly DARS or DPR) is a statement of an undergraduate student's progress toward completion of graduation requirements. Students should check their Academic Requirements Report in MyNIU at least once per semester -- after grades are posted and prior to speaking with an advisor regarding academic progress.
