Getting Advised for Courses
During your first year at Southeastern all Computer Science majors are advised by the Center for Student Excellence. Your SE 101 instructor is your advisor for your first two semesters. Every semester after that the Department of Computer Science is responsible for advising.
All students must be advised each semester to have the registration hold removed. If a student does not yet have an assigned advisor they can come to the Computer Science office or call 985-549-2189 to be assigned a faculty advisor in their concentration or area of interest. Appointments can be scheduled with the advisor in person or the student can use the on-line advising system (see instructions below). However, Freshmen have to see their advisor at least once in person to get to know them. The following resources may be helpful:

Online Advising System
Please remember that if you do online advising, the advisor will remove the hold after the schedule has been approved.
Be sure to provide the name of your assigned advisor for that semester (check listing first).
- Email your advisor after you complete the online advising form. We are not automatically notified.
If you have questions about transfer courses and if they will count in your degree completion sheet, you must speak with a Program Coordinator or the Department Head. You must provide the course description (and syllabus if possible) so that we can best determine if the course will count in our curricula.
Contact information for the Program Coordinators and Department can be found here.
Independent Study Courses
This form is to used for all courses without a standard and pre-defined topics list that a student or small group of students will be taking with a faculty member. For example, CMPS courses with "Special Topics," "Special Problems," or "Independent Study" in the course title.
It must be completed and signed by the faculty member and the student, and submitted to the Department Head for approval.
Course Substitutions will only be considered prior the semester in which the course is to be taken. Approval must be granted from the Department Head and also the Dean's Office before the course is taken. Transfer course substitutions must be requested during the student's first semester at Southeastern.
