Academic advising is an integral part of each student's university experience. Our centralized advising delivery allows you to choose an academic advisor with whom you can continue to consult throughout your academic career.
Advising is much more than simply a time to select courses for the next semester; it is an opportunity for you and your advisor to develop and evaluate the academic plans that will enable you to reach your academic goals. Achieving this mission requires a collaborative effort between students and advisors.
Once you are admitted to a major, academic advising is supplemented with career and professional advising from faculty members in your major. Once per term, the faculty will invite you to an open forum so that you can learn about professional opportunities and get to know faculty and their interests. You should identify faculty in your major with whom you share common interests and communicate with them regularly.
Schedule an Appointment
While the university's policy requires students to have one mandatory academic planning session per year (unless you have earned fewer than 30 hours at UT or are on academic probation), the College of Business Administration considers academic planning to be so critical that we require our pre-majors and majors to meet with an advisor every fall and spring semester.
