TLAC Undergraduate Advising is moving to online appointments only. Email and phone appointments can be made through NAVIGATE. Students must state in the comments that it is an ONLINE appointment. Mandatory advising holds will be taken off with online meetings.
We would like to thank our TLAC students for understanding and adapting in a time like this. Thank you!
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)
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.
Our office advises current TAMU education students seeking Early Childhood-8th grade Texas teacher certification.
Current TAMU students need to log into their HOWDY portal and use the NAVIGATE icon to make an advising appointment, or down load the NAVIGATE phone app. The system only allows students to schedule an appointment seven days in advance.
Prospective Students interested in learning more about our teaching programs should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
****TLAC walk-ins are temporarily postponed due to COVID. If you have a walk-in quick question, please email one of the TLAC advisors, or please set up a NAVIGATE thirty minute appointment to ask questions. Also, if you are interested in changing your major, the best way is to set up a NAVIGATE appointment, and in the comment box explain if you want EC-6, 4th – 8thMath/Science, or 4th – 8th L.A./Social Studies.
All TLAC students are blocked from registration until they have been advised.

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.
