Advising

If you would like to speak with a College of Engineering Counselor, we encourage you to Schedule a Virtual Appointment with a Counselor via the Navigate Student app.The College of Engineering Student Services team will continue to host virtual appointments only during the Fall 2022 semester. 

  • Keep in mind that our Counselors may send communications to your LSU email regarding your scheduled appointment.
  • Students who need their scheduling/advising flag lifted must interact with their Faculty Advisor. Please do not schedule an appointment with a counselor for this reason, as we are unable to assist. Instead, please reach out to your academic department for information on general advising for Fall 2022.
