As students, it’s clear that you are responsible for meeting your educational goals, but OSU and MIME provide plenty of helpful resources for you to plan ahead!

MyDegrees can help you audit your progress towards graduation and plan what courses to take in future terms. Using the Planner tool on MyDegrees can help you identify a realistic graduation term and check for any missing requirements using the audit feature. The School of MIME and the College of Engineering are also able to use information from students’ Plans to see how in-demand a course is for specific terms.

The MIME advising team wants to support you in any way we can. Schedule a meeting with one of our advisors to make or change plans and review your progress towards your degree or certificate completion!

MIME Moveable Flowcharts & Electives

Before you meet with your advisor, it’s a great idea to make sure your MyDegrees Planner is up to date with your current class schedule and one or two upcoming terms. You can use the class scheduler or course catalog to look up course descriptions and prerequisites. MIME students can also utilize our moveable flowcharts to see Course Names, Numbers, Credit Hours, Prerequisites, as well as which terms these classes are offered.

The flowcharts below are completely customizable. You can mark courses you have completed, click and drag courses into other terms, and easily map out your path to graduation. Click to download the flowcharts for your major, and you’ll find a general course plan, a MECOP course plan, course plans for dual majors, and lists of technical/restrictive electives.

Writing a thesis or completing a project that you would like to apply to either your technical or restricted electives? You will need to fill out this form with the supervising faculty member who will oversee your work. Courses numbers 403 or 406 can only be applied to your technical elective requirements once. Talk with your advisor for more information and to finalize the CRN and overrides for registration.

Academic Expectations

Minimum GPA requirement: In an effort to help students make continued progress towards their degree, the Academic Progression Model (APM) outlines college-specific standards, applying to all students in the College of Engineering. In short, students are required to maintain a 2.5 OSU GPA and complete 65% of their attempted credits. For more information, check out this FAQ page.

COE Academic Status: Students who do not meet the minimum GPA and completion rates for a term (or multiple terms), will be informed of a change in their College of Engineering status. This is different from OSU’s Academic Standing (which is based on the university-level regulations).

If you think you might not meet the APM requirements with the College of Engineering or you have been informed that you are now are Warning, Probation or Suspension, please reach out to your advisor. Note: Suspended students will need to Petition for Reinstatement to their Engineering major.

S/U-ing courses: Students may choose to S/U any Baccalaureate Core course, but students will not be able to S/U any COE support, major-specific, or technical/restrictive elective courses for credit towards their degree.
