Bioengineering class registration instructions

All Bioengineering students must select and see their faculty adviser each semester. It is important that you see your faculty adviser during the specified dates of faculty advising meetings (April 3-14, 2017)  as they may not be available at other times. If you are unable to see your assigned adviser, you can attend any of the other BioE faculty advisers’ group meetings.  Please look for emails from the BioEngineering Department for the date, time and location of these group meetings.

Exception: Faculty Advisers for Freshmen, Regent Scholars or BioE Joint Major. Students who have specialized Faculty Advisers and you should attend their meetings or make arrangements to meet with them individually.

2017 Curriculum

A new curriculum has been approved for starting Fall 17. Current students will be able to transfer into the 2017 curriculum by demonstrating they can complete their degree within the 8 semesters. Information on the new curriculum can be found on our webpage.
