Advising and Registration

Advanced Registration

Advance registration for upcoming semesters occurs in November for the Spring, Summer I, and Summer II semesters and in April for the Fall semester. After one semester in IMSE, undergraduate students are advised by pre-assigned faculty members. Undergraduate students interested in transferring to the department should contact Timothy Spees or use Strive.TTU.edu to schedule an advising appointment. Graduate students seeking advising will need to speak with Dr. Weilong Cong (Last names A-K) or Dr. Changxue Xu (Last names L-Z). The advisors' offices are in IMSE 232 for face-to-face appointments, or advising can be completed via video conference or telephone.

In the advising appointment, the student and the advisor discuss what classes the student will take for the upcoming term(s) and discuss career and vocational goals. After the student has been advised, the advising hold will be removed and any permits needed will be provided in the Banner system. Students are instructed to not deviate from their assigned courses for registration without the written consent of their advisor.
