Academic Advising

About Academic Advising

The Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering recommends that students meet with their advisor at least once a semester to ensure that they are progressing towards graduation in a timely manner. Advisors are also a great resource for answering questions regarding graduate school, career options, internships, etc.
