Each semester, all Biomedical Engineering students will have a Mandatory Advisement Hold on their record. This hold is designed to ensure that you are meeting with your advisor regularly to discuss your classes. Once you have met with your advisor, the hold will be lifted and you will be able to register once your registration window opens. You registration window date is determined by your earned unit count.
The advisor for first year BME students is Christine Franks (RTH 110, firstname.lastname@example.org, 213-740-4530). The advisor for all Transfer BME students, as well as sophomores-seniors, is Christopher Noll (DRB 140, email@example.com, 213-740-0335).
Some classes will have pre-requisite or co-requisite classes. These are classes that must be taken prior to another course, or prior to or at the same time as another course. If you do not have the pre-req course, you may be able to request a pre-req waiver by asking the professor to approve your taking the course without the pre-req.
In addition, some classes require Departmental Clearance (“D-Clearance”). This requirement is separate from a prerequisite or co-requisite course requirement, but is used by departments to control access to their courses. D-Clearance is provided by the department that offers the course.
