CECS Advising Services

The CECS Academic Affairs Office (AAO) is located in ENG1, room 107, and is open Monday – Friday from 8 am – 5 pm. We offer academic assistance to undergraduate students within the College of Engineering and Computer Science. AAO handles general academic advising as well as advising on UCF policies and procedures. Click here to locate other UCF Advising offices for non-engineering students at UCF.

AAO academic advisors are available to assist you with the following areas:

  • General university policy questions
  • Resolving engineering registration holds
  • Paperwork (i.e. – ROTC plans, financial aid appeals, out of state transient application, overrides, etc.)
  • Class schedule and registration
  • Long-range academic planning and myKnight degree audit review
  • Study abroad planning
  • Pegasus Path Review
  • CECS major, CECS minor, and/or career exploration (Note: For assistance with majors or minors not offered in CECS, please contact the department where the major or minor is housed.)

Make An Appointment

  • Online:

    You are able to schedule an appointment online in myKnight STAR.

    Note: The following appointments cannot be made online and must be made in person or over the phone: Readmission from Disqualification, Prospective Students, CECS Progress Redirection, Financial Aid Appeals (Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal)

  • By Phone:

    You may call us during office hours at 407-823-2455 to schedule an academic advising appointment.

  • In Person:

    You may stop by ENG1, Room 107 during office hours and speak with our front desk staff to schedule an advising appointment.

Please Note: MyKnight Star will only show available appointment times for two weeks out. If no appointments show up to schedule in MyKnight Star, it could be that all advisors are currently booked for two weeks. This may occur during the peak times of the semesters. In this situation, you should check MyKnight Star again for new available appointment times the following week or plan to attend Walk-In Advising.

Walk-in CECS Advising

Walk-in advising is intended for brief guidance to move you forward in your academic process. Walk-in appointments are seen on a first-come-first-served basis and are limited to 10-15 minute sessions. Walk-in hours are on most Tuesdays and the first week of classes from 9am-3pm. Students can expect long wait times during peak registration times.

We cannot address graduation plans (i.e.- scheduling planning assistance for more than two semesters), ROTC forms, financial aid appeals or out of state transient applications during walk-in advising. If you need assistance with any of those academic matters or need more time to speak with an advisor, please schedule a full advising appointment.

Beginning Fall 2021, students will have the option for virtual walk-in hours through Zoom or Face to Face Walk-In Advising hours in ENG 107. You can enter the Zoom waiting room during established walk-in hours by scanning or clicking the QR code.
