Academic Advisors

Advising Overview

All nuclear and radiological engineering students have two advisors, an academic advisor and a faculty advisor.

Undergraduate Advising Purpose

  • Our mission is to support and inspire the development of Woodruff School undergraduate students.
  • Our vision is that undergraduate academic advising in the Woodruff School will actively engage students in their educational experience so they can become independent, life-long learners who are innovative and contributing members in their larger community.

Undergraduate Advising Process

  • We encourage all students to visit or contact us at any time with questions, concerns or problems.
  • We require academic advisement for the following groups of students:
