Advisors work with students pursuing Texas teacher certification offering 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)
Current TAMU students should to log into their Howdy portal and use the Navigate icon to make an advising appointment, or download the Navigate phone app.
The system only allows students to schedule an appointment 14 days in advance.
Our office advises current TAMU education students seeking Early Childhood-8th grade Texas teacher certification.
If you have a walk-in quick question, please email one of the TLAC advisors or set up a 30-minute appointment through Navigate to ask questions.
If you are interested in changing your major, the best way is to set up a Navigate appointment and specify if you want EC-6, 4th – 8thMath/Science, or 4th – 8th L.A./Social Studies.
Appointments for mandatory sessions are reserved for that classification only and may be made at any time during that period. Walk-ins are open to all students.
All TLAC students are blocked from registration until they have been advised.

Pre-Registration for Spring 23’ begins
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.
Clinical Teaching Students should schedule appointments with their TLAC advisor using Navigate or contact the advising office at (979) 862-4345.
