Academic advising is a holistic, collaborative relationship between students and advisors to help students achieve their educational and career goals. During this process, advisors help students navigate their certificate or degree plan based on the students’ end goals. Advisors serve as a support system to students by linking them to on and off campus resources to enhance academic success.

  • New students are expected to schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor in the Academic Advising Office.
  • Continuing students are expected to make an appointment with a Faculty Advisor.
  • All appointments can be scheduled directly through Appointments Plus.

TSI Requirement

All students are expected to adhere to the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) regulations. Students who are not exempt (see TSI exemptions) are required to take the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) in Math, Reading, and Writing. Students may be exempted in one subject and not the other. In that case, the student must test in only the deficient area.

  • Students who are college-ready or TSI-exempt are eligible to take any class on the degree plan. They can self-register for their classes. (See instructions for self-registration.)
  • Students who are not college-ready or are not TSI-exempt must take a developmental course in their deficient area based on their TSIA score. They  must see an advisor for class registration. Schedule your advising appointment.
