Academic Advising

Academic advising is an integral part of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences’ (CECAS) commitment to helping students meet their educational and personal goals. Academic advisors provide students with specialized, personal contact and ensure that they make satisfactory academic progress.

Advising is an ongoing educational process where students work with their advisor to maximize their educational experience. Clemson University values quality academic advising, understanding that valuable advising is not limited to registration or course selection but also provides information and directs students to resources that enable sound career and personal choices.
