Advising

BME Advising

Advising is one of the most important services provided by our department. Our Academic Advisors offer guidance regarding Biomedical Engineering (BME). This includes academic planning, degree requirements, course descriptions, course prerequisites, and elective selections. Academic Advisors also help with administrative procedures such as registration, change of major, course equivalences, and graduation.

  • Advising orientation sessions are held once per semester before the start of the registration period. Attendance is required for all incoming freshman students. Advising orientation dates are posted on the FIU Orientation and Parent Programs website. Please see link for upcoming dates: http://orientation.fiu.edu/freshmen/orientation-dates/index.html
  • Transfer students are required to attend transfer orientation at the time of matriculation. Transfer students must meet with an academic advisor for academic planning and course equivalencies.
  • Declaration of major is encouraged as soon as possible for non-BME students who wish to declare the BME major. Students must complete the Change of Major form and meet with a BME academic advisor in the Engineering Advising Center (EC 2760) in order to change majors. Please see link to access Change of Major form: http://onestop.fiu.edu/forms/Change%20of%20Major1.pdf
  • Advising Holds are placed on students accounts before the registration period starts. This ensures communication between students and the academic advisor during the registration period. The advising hold will be released once you have seen your academic advisor.
  • Registration Procedure can be done directly using PantherSoft once the Advising Hold has been removed. For more information on the registration procedure please see the link: http://onestop.fiu.edu/Registrar/sign-up/index.html#
  • Advising appointments are available in 20-minute segments. Students can make an appointment through the Student Dashboard system or call the Engineering Advising Center at 305-348-0273. Appointments should be made 24 hours in advance. During the registration period, your Academic Advisor may offer walk-in hours. However, it is strongly recommended that you make an appointment in order to avoid extended wait times. Your Academic Advisor’s office hours are posted in the Engineering Advising Center.
