The Academic Advisor for Undergraduate Chemical Engineering for non-honor 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] Central.UH.EDU. Honor students are advised by Drs. Bollini, Cirino, and Orman.  Honor students will be contacted by the appropriate advisor via email during manadatory advising in November and April.

Mandatory advising for career planning/advising for non-honors students is conducted by several faculty members of our department. The objective is to help on degree planning, answer any questions concerning academic policies, scholarships, internships, etc. Meeting duration is 10-15 minutes. This must be accomplished during the month of November for the Spring semester and April for the Summer and Fall semesters. Failure to do this will result in a hold placed on your account after either November or April until you meet with your advisor. Please sign up with your corresponding faculty advisor as shown below. The method for signing up is also listed on the table. Please bring the flow chart or degree plan so the faculty advisor can sign off. The career planning/advising is mandatory, but we will waive it if you do not want to meet with your faculty advisor — please tell your faculty advisor so at the time of signing up.  If you would like to waive your mandatory advising session, you can also email Veronica Ellison directly vellison [at]  All students on probation or suspension or active but currently non enrolled will be advised by Dr. Cirino (Undergraduate  Program Director).   

Dr. Cirino also holds two zoom meetings with freshmen (honors and non-honors) to discuss chemical engineering in general during the month of November.
