Academic Advising

An academic advisor is a partner in a student's academic journey as they move through and graduate from Texas A&M University. An academic advisor is a reliable source of information about majors, one who can help students explore their interests, consider alternative majors, select courses, develop a degree plan, and meet degree requirements. Academic advisors can connect students with academic and personal support programs, co-curricular opportunities, and career options.
