Academic Advising

In 1911 the faculty adopted a new system of academic counseling, with each member of the faculty accepting a given number of students to provide individual assistance in academic problems and scheduling. On October 9, 1978, mandatory advising was implemented and required students to meet with their advisors at least once during the academic year. The policy was revised in the early 2000s to require a visit with an advisor once a semester before being cleared for registration. This policy was modified, effective in 2005, to require students with more than 30 credit hours earned at UT (other than transfer students, freshmen, and students on academic review) to meet with an advisor only once a year.
