Academic advising is required for all UAB Engineering students. For all Pre-Engineering students (regardless of department), this advising is conducted through the UAB School of Engineering Office of Academic Programs.  When the student has met all requirements for advancing from Pre-Engineering to one of the five UAB Engineering departments, advising will be conducted in that particular UAB Engineering department.  All academic advising within the UAB School of Engineering is conducted by engineering professors.

Students are encouraged to set an appointment for the next semester’s academic advising early in the current semester.  


First-term students must meet with an advisor in the Office of Academic Programs prior to being admitted to a major. You may schedule an appointment by clicking the appropriate link or by calling the number below:
