5 Academic advising is a critical component of student success in the Donald P. Shiley School of Engineering. Our Academic Advising Program empowers students to take responsibility for their academic success through a collaborative relationship between advisor and student. Through taking full ownership of their degree, Shiley students will be prepared to meet the challenges of the world today in their professions in engineering and computer science. Mission Statement

6 Confidentiality Fairness & Equality Accessibility (appointments v. office hours) Appointments are good when you want me to review your academic record in detail before you arrive (e.g., if I add a minor in Computer Science, how would that affect my degree plan?) Office hours are great for quick, 5-min questions (e.g., has my transfer credit from Portland Community College come through?) Busiest Time Periods… Advising (a few weeks before fall/spring break): I am available to a specific group. Advanced Registration (November & April): I am more available to all students. Turnaround: up to 1 week, due to volume of I process. Expectations of Academic Program Counselor
