Starting from the semester of spring 2020, the Department of Computer Science
will change the format of faculty advisement for its undergraduate students.
In previous semesters, we made faculty advisement mandatary for every CS/SE major.
Unfortunately, due to rising enrollment, the increased workload of advising
every major every semester became unsustainable for the faculty advisors.
To use existing resources more effectively, the department will change
the format of faculty advisement such that only the following student groups
will be advised each semester:
Students who have just entered the CS or SE major at UCO
These include freshmen, transfer students, and students
who change their major to CS/SE.
If you are in this group,
a hold will be placed on your UCO account on May 4, 2020.
You will need to schedule an advisement meeting
with Dr. Gang Qian, Dr. Hong Sung, or Dr. Tom Turner to get the hold lifted.
Students who will be enrolling into the courses below in the subsequent semester(s)
CMSC 2613 Programming II
CMSC 3613 Data Structures and Algorithms
CS or SE Capstone courses: CMSC 4513 Software Design & Development or SE 4513 Software Engineering Senior Project
If you are in the above group, a hold will NOT be placed on your account.
However, you will need to obtain instructor permission to enroll into the courses.
Please contact Dr. Gang Qian, Dr. Hong Sung, or Dr. Tom Turner for advisement.
The faculty advisor will then provide instructor permission for you to enroll.
Planning for Your Degree Programs
Since we do not advise you every semester,
please do not hesitate to contact our advisor, Ms. Mia Cruz, at email@example.com
if you have any question on course planning.
You are also very welcome to contact Dr. Gang Qian (Chairperson) at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
