How do I make an appointment with a chemical engineering advisor?

During the summer, priority is given to issues in need of immediate attention because there are only limited advising hours.  If you have a pressing issue during the summer, email cmadvise@mtu.edu.  Regular advising hours will start two weeks before falls semester starts.

During the school year, if you need help with schedule planning, minors, co-ops, study abroad, changing majors, or degree audits then you will need to schedule an appointment with Katie Torrey (Chem Sci room 202M) using your Michigan Tech Google calendar.  Advising appointments are usually 30 minutes long.  Appointments will not be available during busy times; instead, there are scheduled walk-in office hours during busy weeks, and no appointment is necessary.

Please come prepared to your appointment.
