Advisors

As an Academic Advisor at the University of Texas at Arlington, you are integral to ensuring the successful completion of our university's educational mission.  Through your thoughtful interactions with our students, you guide each emerging scholar through a process of thinking critically about their roles and responsibilities as part of our Maverick community.  An academic advisor's role is to mentor and provide timely advice to aid students in their pursuit of goals and graduation.  To do this requires a commitment to student success and an ability to engage students to think beyond their previous experiences and current world view to grasp the promise of a new opportunity. Together, advisors offer an important contribution to the learning experience provided by this university and impact our ability to recruit, retain, and graduate students.

This site is designed to aid academic advisors in their work with students.  Here you will find resources and information that will offer new ideas, inform about policies, and provide opportunities for professional development and engagement within the advising community.  Though maintained by the University Advising Center in University College, this site serves as a central point from which advisors may learn, inform, and explore.  We invite you to visit frequently to stay up-to-date on upcoming events or to learn more about training opportunities and new policies.  We also encourage you to explore the many forms, tools, and policy explanations designed to help make your job easier.  Our goal is to help you stay informed in order to continue our commitment to providing the best possible information to students.
