How often should I meet with an ECE Undergraduate Advisor?

Prior to registration, you are required to meet with your assigned advisor at least once a semester to make sure that you are on track for graduation.  We also like to touch base with you to discuss your academic progress and to assess your satisfaction with your experiences in ECE thus far.
