Civil & Environmental Engineering Advising Resources

Graduate advising is done similar to undergraduate advising. Each specialty area has specific degree requirements and a designated advisor for graduate studies. The Civil and Environmental Engineering Graduate Office, located in the Dwight Look Engineering Building (DLEB) Room 101, can provide a wealth of information to help you through the graduate degree process.

The staff handles student records information, course substitution requests, and degree evaluation for graduation. They can also assist students with course registration and force requests for civil engineering courses. Our office ensures all policies and procedures, academic progress and sanctions, technical requirements, prerequisites and other related issues are properly addressed.

For specific questions related to your area of study, please contact your Area Graduate Coordinators:
