Advising

We are currently providing all services remotely and are available through telework. 

ECE Advising Updates for Spring 2020:

The ECE Advising Office will be physically closed until further notice, but advisors will be accessible for online advising. 
 
Advising Appointments:
Please visit our advising appointment scheduler https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/engr/scheduling/adv/stu_book_appt/ to set up an appointment.  If you are unable to set up an appointment, please contact the advisor for availability. Virtual advising will be conducted via Zoom or Microsoft Teams either on audio or video (instructions will be sent via email when you register for your appointment).
 
Q drops:
Please follow these guidelines: Schedule an advising appointment with any ECE advisor using the appointment scheduler. After you meet with an ECE advisor, please contact ESS: studentservices@engr.utexas.edu to finalize your Q drop process.  We are moving away from the paper copy format to ease the process.
 
Pass/Fail:
Due to COVID-19, all UT undergraduate students have the option of taking their classes Pass/Fail (P/F) for the Spring 2020 semester. Please note the following P/F information:
  • Undergraduates have the option to take P/F in one course and receive a grade in another course; there is no limit to the number of classes for which you can take P/F.
  • Any and all classes for which you take P/F this semester (Spring 2020) will count toward your engineering degree requirements. This means if you get a “P” in a course, that course will still count towards your degree, and it will be acceptable as a pre-requisite. If you receive a "P", it will not impact your GPA. If you receive an "F", it WILL impact your GPA.
  • The final decision date to select P/F for a course/courses is May 29, 2020 by 5 PM (CDT). This decision deadline and time are firm and students will not be able to change after this date and time.
How to Request Pass/Fail:
To elect the P/F option, a student MUST do the following:
  • Formally request via email from their UT email address to studentservices@engr.utexas.edu requesting a change to P/F.
  • The student must include in this email request:
  • Full name, student’s EID, course(s) number and course(s) unique, and fully state a request to do P/F.
  • The final decision date to select P/F for a course/courses is May 29, 2020 by 5 PM (CDT). This decision deadline and time are firm and students will not be able to change after this date and time

Peer Advising:
Our Peer Advisors are still available for quick questions and peer advising appointments online! Their schedules for Spring 2020 semester are Monday- Friday from 8am- 9pm. Please direct any and all peer-advising related inquiries to this email: peer-advisor@ece.utexas.edu and an ECE Peer Advisor will be happy to answer your question or schedule an appointment!
 
 
ECE ADVISING OFFICE: The mission of ECE Undergraduate Advising is to provide the advice, services, and resources needed for students to make informed decisions about their progress towards an Electrical and Computer Engineering degree.
