If you're interested in engineering or engineering technology, we'll help you get started on your academic journey. We can help you understand course and degree requirements, explore majors and minors, and connect with academic and career resources.
We also offer tutoring services to engineering and engineering technology students, especially those new to NIU. We can help ease your transition to campus.
You'll meet with one of our professional advisors each semester before registering for classes. Once you declare a major and meet the following math requirement, you'll meet with a faculty advisor instead:
For more information, contact us at 815-753-8024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're currently holding virtual advising appointments on Microsoft Teams. For the best experience, we recommend downloading the Teams app to your laptop or desktop computer.
Each semester, we'll send information to your NIU email account about scheduling your advising appointment. You can also contact us at any time to set up an appointment. You must attend this appointment before you can register for classes.
Before your appointment, check your Academics Requirement Report in MyNIU to see your degree progress. Think of questions to ask your advisor on topics such as degree requirements, potential minors, summer classes and internships.
If you're assigned to one of our professional advisors, you can make an appointment to request a course withdrawal:
If you have a faculty advisor, contact us at email@example.com about requesting a course withdrawal.
Please note: Seeking a course withdrawal could impact your degree progress, current schedule, full-time status and/or financial aid.
