The Academic Advisor for Undergraduate Chemical Engineering for non-honors students is Ms. Veronica Ellison. CHEE virtual advising is available from 3 pm – 5 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please email her to get an appointment if you want zoom virtual advising.  You may also contact her by email if advising is needed outside these hours at vellison [at] (vellison[at]central[dot]uh[dot]edu). Honors students are advised by Drs. Bollini, Cirino, and Orman (refer to assignment list below).

Mandatory faculty advising sessions are an opportunity for students to seek career mentoring/planning, help with degree planning, and to answer any questions concerning academic policies, scholarships, co-op/internships or research opportunities, etc. Meeting duration is ~15 minutes. This must be accomplished during October-November for the Spring semester, and March-April for the Summer and Fall semesters. A Faculty Mentoring Form must be completed, with signatures from the student and faculty advisor. Failure to do this will result in a hold placed on your account until you meet with your advisor. You may NOT waive this mandatory advising.

Each student’s faculty advisor is listed below. Advisors will email their respective students to indicate their availability; contact your advisor directly if you do not hear from him/her, or if you are having trouble scheduling your appointment. As indicated on the Faculty Mentoring Form, students are to prepare in advance an updated flow chart or degree plan prior — this should indicate which courses you have completed, and your plans for the coming semester.

All students on probation or suspension, or active but currently not enrolled, are advised by Dr. Cirino (Undergraduate Program Director, pccirino [at] (pccirino[at]uh[dot]edu)).

Dr. Cirino is always available to further discuss the curriculum or chemical engineering in general. Inquire if interested.
