Students are required to create an approved plan of study for their degree when they enter the program. They are then required to see their advisor at least once a year to re-assess that plan, although many CEIE students prefer to meet with their advisor each semester when they are preparing to register for courses for the next semester.  Students in their second to last semester before they graduate (i.e. in fall for spring or summer graduation, or in spring for fall graduation) are recommended to make an advising appointment with the Associate Director of Undergraduate Programs, Lisa Nolder to check that they will meet all degree requirements for graduation in their final semester.
