In Spring 2013, the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology (CEET) implemented a new 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 his/her major.
For engineering (ELE, ISYE and MEE) majors, that means they will be in the CAO until successfully passing MATH 230 with a grade of "C" or better. Majors within the Department of Technology will receive advising in the CAO until successfully passing MATH 110 with a grade of "C" or better.
Once a student meets his/her Academic Success Marker, 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.
It is widely felt this hybrid advising model offers students the best of both worlds: concrete and excellent general advising and guidance for the first two years of his/her academic career; and outstanding content advising and
professional career guidance for the remaining time toward the degree.

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