Adviser meeting with student.


Undergraduate Advising

There are two levels of undergraduate advising for Penn State engineering students. The Engineering Advising Center (EAC) primarily serves as the academic advising resource for students in pre-major status (ENGR) at University Park. 

Undergraduates who have been admitted into the civil and environmental engineering major and who have a CE classification should contact the department for assignment of an adviser. The undergraduate academic office is located in 218 Sackett Building.

Every semester before registration begins, all CE students are encouraged to meet with their adviser. Advisers are generally available on a walk-in basis during posted office hours. Students may also ask questions and schedule appointments by telephone or email. If you're having difficulty finding a time when you and your adviser are both available, please contact the department's undergraduate academic officer.
