The Academic Advisor for Undergraduate Chemical Engineering for non-honor students is Ms. Veronica Ellison. CHEE walk-in advising is available from 3 pm - 5 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  You may also contact her by email if advising is needed outside these hours at vellison [at] Central [dot] UH [dot] EDU. CHEE Advising is located in the Cullen College of Engineering, Bldg 1, room S241.

There is also mandatory advising for career planning/advising for non-honors students conducted by several faculty members of our department. The objective is to help on degree planning, answer any questions concerning academic policies, scholarships, internships, etc. Meeting duration is 10-15 minutes. This must be accomplished during the month of November for the Spring semester and April for the Summer and Fall semesters. Failure to do this will result in a hold placed on your account after either November or April until you meet with your advisor. Please sign up with your corresponding advisor as shown below. The method for signing up is also listed on the table. Please bring the flow chart or degree plan so the advisor can sign off. The career planning/advising is mandatory, but we will waive it if you do not want to meet with your advisor — please tell your advisor so at the time of signing up. All students on probation or suspension will be advised by Dr. Fleischer (Undergraduate Program Director).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Harold and Dr. Fleischer will be holding career advising Zoom group meetings during the month of April.  They will answer/discuss any questions you may have.  Please send an email to Veronica Ellison vellison [at] Central [dot] UH [dot] EDU so Zoom meetings can be scheduled.  The available dates are on Fridays, April 3, 10, 17 and 24 from 10 am – 11 am.

If you would like to meet with your advisor for Summer/Fall advising during the month of April in person, please contact your advisor via email so he/she can set up a Zoom meeting at an agreed upon date and time.  The following list shows your corresponding advisor.

If you would like to waive your mandatory advising session, please email Veronica Ellison directly vellison [at] Central [dot] UH [dot] EDU.  A hold will be put in your account after April if you do neither of the above.
