A central advising office is maintained for the convenience of College of Engineering and Applied Sciences students. Because prerequisites are strictly enforced and it is essential to follow the program plans that appear in the curricula descriptions, students must contact their academic advisor in the first semester of enrollment at Western Michigan University. 

Advisors are available to assist in program planning, to recommend electives appropriate to the student’s educational objectives, to discuss employment opportunities, and to help with general academic problems. Transfer credit and all course substitutions must be recommended by the advisor and approved by the appropriate department curriculum committee.
