Orientation Advising

Complete your Advising Orientation Requirement with Mechanical Engineering Advisors!

We cannot wait to meet you! To meet the Orientation advising requirement we have decided to conduct live sessions for all first year incoming students and have individual advising appointments with transfer students. Please read below for instructions on when to sign-up and next steps.

Should I sign-up for a live session or advising appointment now?

Please sign up for a session or schedule an appointment after you have received an email from the Advising Office (MEUndergrad@utah.edu) instructing you that it is time for you to sign-up for a session. This will happen after you have signed up for and have had time to complete the University Orientation (the online Canvas modules).

What do I need to complete before attending a live session or advising appointment?

  1. Pay Deposit to University of Utah
  2. Register for University of Utah Orientation
  3. Complete University Online Orientation Module (This will remove your Orientation Hold)
  4. Sign-up for Live Session with the Department of Mechanical Engineering (session will last 1 hour) or schedule an individual transfer advising session. (This will remove your Advising Hold)
  5. Register for classes!

What if I have questions for my advisor now and I’m going to be a first-year student?

We ask that you please wait to reach out to your advisor until after completing the live session We will be covering A LOT of information during the live session that will be very valuable and will address many of your initial questions. After the live session, you will have an opportunity to have a drop-in advising appointment with your advisor or schedule an appointment for a later date.

You can also visit our Orientation Resource page to research the answer to your questions before the live session.
