Each undergraduate student in the IEOR Department is assigned a faculty advisor for one-on-one advisement and coaching. Customized student program plans are provided to assist students with their academic course scheduling.

 

Program Plans

Each IEOR student is assigned to a Departmental faculty advisor to guide the student through the major curriculum. Your CSA and Departmental advisors are listed in your Academic Profile in Student Services Online.  We ask each student to complete and track their major degree progress using the Program Plan below.

These Program Plans and bulletins are provided to assist students with their academic course scheduling. We ask that all students follow their designated bulletin (bulletin year during the second year), and take the core courses in the prescribed semester.  Delaying core courses is not permitted and may result in future scheduling conflicts and possible delay in graduation. Request to drop a major core requirement during the designated semester may result in an unofficial withdrawal (UW) on the transcript.

Additional changes to the Program Plan must be approved by the faculty advisor or by one of the main Departmental contacts listed below (Professor Karl Sigman, Ms. Kristen Maynor or Ms. Carmen Ng).  The Department does not guarantee that a request to drop is always approved; hence, it is important to continue to attend and engage in the class until the drop is confirmed.

Students should meet with their faculty advisors to discuss their degree progress during the early/regular registration periods. Faculty appointment times are emailed to you prior to your registration period.  The faculty advisor will review your degree progress and provide guidance on course selection. Prior to meeting with your advisor, update your Program Plan, email it to the IEOR Advising Team [mailto: advising@ieor.columbia.edu], and bring a printed copy to your advising session.
