Frequently Asked Questions About Advising
You have been assigned a chemical or petroleum engineering faculty member to provide you with professional and academic advising. Each semester, a two-week advising period is scheduled during which students plan schedules for the following semester. This period is published on the Academic Calendar for each semester. Be sure to schedule an appointment with your assigned faculty advisor during this period so that you are ready to register for classes when your registration window opens.
EVERY STUDENT is responsible for maintaining a personal record of progress to degree completion to ensure all degree requirements are met. Curriculum worksheets are provided for this purpose:
In addition, all MSU students have access to the degree audit system CAPP (i.e., Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning) in myState. CAPP helps you and your faculty advisor track your progress toward graduation. It outlines all courses required for the chosen major and which courses have been completed or remain to be taken, as well as hours earned, GPAs, and transfer hours.
To view CAPP, choose CAPP Compliance under Academic Records in myState and view a previously run evaluation or generate a new evaluation. To investigate a possible change in major or concentration or the addition of a double major, choose a What-If evaluation. These audits use courses completed and those scheduled to inform you of your status at any point in your university career. Questions concerning articulation or substitution of courses should be directed to your assigned faculty advisor.
