All UT students are required to be academically advised prior to registering for classes. Advisors guide students in selecting courses and even choosing a major. Incoming freshmen and transfer students will meet their advisors and register for classes during Orientation.
Students who do not attend Orientation must contact the advising center of the college to which they were admitted to arrange an advising appointment. University undecided students must contact the College of Arts and Sciences advising center.
The Undergraduate Academic Advising website has important information about advising policies, student and advisor responsibilities, and ways to prepare for your advising appointment.
» What is an Academic Advisor?
Your UT academic advisor will help guide you in making decisions about your academic plan at UT. Together, you will discuss majors, career paths, and other opportunities on campus, such as study abroad or service learning.
» Who is my advisor?
If you’ve decided on a major, you’ll be advised through your college’s advising center, or by a professor in your academic department. If you’re undecided about your major, you’ll be advised through the College of Arts & Sciences Advising Center.
