Faculty advising

A new curriculum has been approved starting Fall 2017. Current students will be able to transfer into the 2017 curriculum by demonstrating that they can complete their degree within the 8 semesters.

Attend an information session on the new curriculum.

Who is my Faculty adviser?
Regents Scholars: Prof. Liepmann
Freshmen: Terry Johnson
Joint BioE/MSE majors: Prof. Messersmith
All others choose a faculty adviser during the open session each semester. Continuing students should log into the Faculty Advising web app (using your CalNet ID) and select your faculty adviser. Once you have made a choice, make sure to save your selection. See the subject area designations in the schedule below.

Don’t Forget:

  • For Fall 2017 enrollment use Cal Central. Obtain your class schedule under Schedule Planner.
  • Download the correct BioE worksheet for your curriculum and fill it out
  • Faculty Advisers will take roll at the end of each advising session and will provide a list of students who attended their advising sessions, those students who DO NOT ATTEND an advising session will have their registration blocked and will be unable to enroll in classes.
