Undergraduate Advising

Advisors work with students to give advice on course load, course transfer questions and other general advising information. Students should see their advisor if they have any questions regarding their degree.

The advisors strive to see each student who needs an appointment; however, there are times of year when advisors are extremely busy:

  • The week before school starts
  • The first week of school (add/drop period)
  • Q-drop deadline
  • Pre-registration period (last 6 weeks leading up to graduation)

TLAC students are required to meet with their academic advisors each semester. Freshmen are required to attend an additional freshman meeting every fall. Information about this meeting will be sent to students' TAMU email account.

Appointments

To contact the advising office, call (979) 845-5312 or visit Heaton Hall 115. Current Texas A&M students should make an appointment on SWAN

Clinical Teachers

Students participating in clinical teaching are not required to attend an individual advising session. Contact your advisor to make sure your hold has been lifted before graduation. (The Registrar's Office cannot tell if you are clinical teaching when they apply the hold, so you will be blocked until you contact your advisor.)

To contact the advising office, call (979) 845-5312 or visit Heaton Hall 115. Current Texas A&M students should make an appointment on SWAN
