    • Meet Your Advisors

      Finding Your Advisor

      As an undergraduate student in our program, you will have the valuable opportunity to work with not one but two advisors.

      Academic Advisor: Your professional academic advisor is your go-to resource for all matters related to your academic progress. They are here to help you with course schedules, degree requirements, signing/processing student forms, and more. Whether you have questions about academic policies or registration issues, need assistance with course scheduling, or require guidance on academic challenges, your professional academic advisor is just a click or a visit away. Your academic advisor is also the person who reviews the course plan you submit in Canvas to receive your registration PIN.

      Academic advisors are assigned by the student's last name:
      Last name starting with A - G: Jessica LeCroy -
      Last name starting with H - Z: Susan Long -

      Faculty Advisor: Your faculty advisor is a knowledgeable member of your success team who will provide you with insights into the field of industrial engineering. They can offer career advice, grad school, co-op, internship advice, and mentoring, and help you connect your academic coursework to real-world applications. Meeting with your faculty advisor at least once a year is a key part of your academic journey, ensuring you receive personalized guidance and mentorship.

      Your professional academic advisor and faculty advisor are listed in “My Success Team” in the Navigate student app. You are welcome and encouraged to schedule appointments with them through the Navigate Student app

      Navigate Student App

      Navigate Student is an app that Clemson University uses to help facilitate the academic advising process. This app can be used for appointment scheduling, viewing your class schedule, locating campus resources, generating to-do lists based on the academic calendar, creating reminders, and browsing other majors. The Navigate Student app can be downloaded via either the App Store or Google Play.

    • Registration and Curriculum Worksheet

      Curriculum Planning

      The Prereq Flowchart pictured shows the prerequisite requirements for IE-required courses. IE courses can be taken in any semester they are offered as long as a prerequisite and other requirements are satisfied. More detailed prerequisite and corequisite information can be found in the Academic Catalog and DegreeWorks ( iRoar > Student Self-Service > Student Records > DegreeWorks (Undergraduate Only)).

      For a full view of the flowchart, please review the Undergraduate Handbook.

      Course Planning

      Each semester, you will be required to submit a course plan outlining your remaining requirements from now until graduation. This plan is a crucial component of your academic roadmap and serves as the foundation for your registration process. Here's how it works:

      1. Create Your Course Plan: Using our uniquely coded, macro-enabled Course Planning Worksheet, plan your courses for the upcoming semester through graduation, taking into consideration your degree requirements and academic goals. Be sure to consult the Undergraduate Handbook or course catalog for prerequisite information.
      2. Submit your Course Plan in Canvas: Once you've created your course plan, submit your plan in the course planning assignment within the IE Undergraduate Student workgroup in Canvas. Your academic advisor will review your plan to ensure it aligns with your degree requirements and helps you stay on track to graduation.
      3. Receive Your Registration PIN: After your plan is reviewed and confirmed as accurate and valid, your professional academic advisor will provide you with a registration PIN as the grade on the assignment. This PIN will allow you to register for classes during the designated registration period.

      Course Registration

      Registration occurs during the second half of each semester. See the University's Academic Calendar for more information.

      1. For your time ticket, go to your iRoar Student Profile ( iRoar > Student Self-Service > Student Records > iRoar Student Profile).
      2. In the top right corner of the page, click "Registration Notices" to see your time ticket.
      3. See the Registrar's time ticket schedule for a list of registration windows by registration priority group.
    • Advising Forms
      • Academic Forgiveness - requests are submitted via iRoar (iRoar > Student Self-Service > Student Records > Request Academic Forgiveness).
      • Approval of Credits to be Earned at Another School - the course will only count towards your degree requirements if approved as transferable to Clemson.
      • FERPA Release - students may choose to complete and submit a FERPA Release form to allow access or release of their educational record to a third party (e.g., parent or guardian).
      • Program Fee Waiver - students who are no longer pursuing engineering or computing degrees and cannot declare their intended major may apply for a Program Fee Waiver.

    • Change of Major

      To declare Industrial Engineering as your major, you must have at least a 2.0 GPA and a 2.0 Engineering GPA and have completed the General Engineering core curriculum.

      If you are currently in an engineering discipline and are interested in switching to Industrial Engineering, please schedule an appointment with a Student Services team member using CU Navigate (select ‘Explore Industrial Engineering’). You can submit an Undergraduate Change of Program request in iROAR.

      If you are currently in a non-engineering major, you must first change your major to General Engineering. Since the IE department strictly enforces prerequisites, we believe it is important that students understand the courses required each semester. As such, for non-General Engineering students, we require that the student complete a plan of study that documents all courses to be taken until graduation. The plan must be presented on a standard departmental Course Planning Worksheet in Excel format (macros enabled). You then need to email it to Jess LeCroy (if the student’s last name begins with A - G) or Susan Long (if the student’s last name begins with H - Z).

      To learn more, visit the General Engineering advising website.
