Undergraduate Academic Advising
Academic counselors, faculty advisors and graduate program coordinators assist students by providing information and advice related to academic programs. This includes--but is not limited to--specific major requirements for graduation, course planning, insight into how majors and careers may fit together, and preparation for further education.
Students not yet enrolled at A&M-Central Texas may meet with an academic counselor to discuss how their previous coursework may be transferred and applied to their chosen degree. Prospective students are also eligible for A&M-Central Texas’s transfer program called Warrior Corps.
All newly admitted and readmitted students are required to meet with an academic counselor--either in person, online, or via telephone--before they will be permitted to enroll in courses. Students may schedule face-to-face or phone appointments with an academic counselor. Students may email firstname.lastname@example.org to correspond with an academic counselor.
*All Social Work students should contact the department directly at (254) 519-5406 for any inquiries or to set up an advising appointment.
