What are Katie’s office hours?

If you are looking for the flowchart or other advising handouts, these are available on the Degree Requirements and Advising PDFs webpages.

If you are having problems registering for courses that are not chemical engineering courses, go to the Registrar’s Office located in the Wahtera Center in the Admin building.

Also check out our FAQ’s on the right hand side of the page for answers to many common questions.

Week 1 and Week 2

I have walk-in office hours for questions regarding fall classes.  No appointments are needed.  Walk-in hours are posted on my Google calendar.

Appointments are available for new transfer students, students on probation or other special cases.  Times available for appointments are posted on my Google calendar.  Schedule a meeting with me using your Google calendar during one of these times.  Don’t forget to invite me to the meeting.

Week 3 through Week 7

This is the best time to schedule a meeting with me for long term planning or fitting in a co-op or minor, because you will beat the last minute rush before registration.  I am in the office Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of most weeks and am usually available 9:30am-3pm.  To set up an appointment, schedule a meeting with me using your Google calendar.  Any of the blank times are available.  A half hour meeting is usually enough time.  Don’t forget to invite me to the meeting.

Week 8 through Week 10

I have walk-in office hours for questions regarding spring and summer class scheduling.  No appointments are needed.  Walk-in hours are posted on my Google calendar.

This is a busy time, so please come prepared with your advising materials (such as a crossed off flowchart or suggested schedule) and a draft of what you think you should be taking next semester.  You may need to wait in line.  🙁

Week 11 through Finals Week

I am in the office Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of most weeks and am usually available 9:30am-3pm.  Appointments are recommended and take priority over drop-ins.  To set up an appointment, schedule a meeting with me using your Google calendar.  Any of the blank times are available.  A half hour meeting is usually enough time.  Don’t forget to invite me to the meeting.

Summer Advising:

Priority is given to issues in need of immediate attention because I only limited summer 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.

 


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.

Directions for using your Google calendar to find an available time and scheduling a meeting are below:

Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?

Yes.  Please be prepared.  Before your appointment, take a look at your transcript on Banweb.  It is important that you know exactly what classes are on it.

Bring the following with you to your appointment:

  1. The flowchart with classes crossed off that you’ve already completed and are currently taking.
  2. A list of any classes on your transcript that you don’t know where they belong on the flowchart.
  3. A list of classes that you plan to take next semester and beyond, even if it is a rough draft.  The semester planning worksheet will help with this.
  4. Anything we worked on during previous appointments.
  5. The folder containing advising handouts that you got during orientation or when you changed majors.

Copies of the advising handouts are also available on the department’s Advising Handouts webpage.  Appointments with an advisor may be made using the University email system.


I am a new transfer student. Do I need to meet with an advisor?

Yes!  We strongly encourage all incoming transfer students to meet with an advisor. We use this time to review transfer credit and to develop an expected graduation date based on remaining degree requirements, scheduling and prerequisite constraints, and your individual goals.

Walk-in office hours for new transfer students are scheduled during the fall transfer student orientation, which is held the Friday before fall classes start.  The transfer student orientation is highly recommended.  If you are not able to attend during this time or are transferring in during the spring or summer semesters, email cmadvise@mtu.edu to schedule an in-person or phone appointment with an advisor.





When are your walk-in hours?

Walk-in office hours, where no appointments are needed, are for students who need to make last minute adjustments to their schedule or who need assistance with registration for next semester.  They are held during peak advising times of the academic year, which are at the start of the semester (first and second week of classes) and during registration weeks (tenth week and eleventh week of classes).  Walk-in office hour times will be posted.  There are no summer walk-in office hours.

If you are looking for assistance with long term planning or need to complete a degree audit for graduation, we ask that you schedule an appointment for another time during the fall or spring semesters.
