Advising Requirements for MSN Nursing Students

Students in the MSN program are welcome to meet with an advisor. Once admitted to UT Arlington, students may enroll in their coursework using the degree plan provided by the academic advisor and proceed to registration. Students are encouraged to contact their advisor with any questions. Information related to courses, registration and drops, and academic standing is provided when students are first contacted by an advisor. It is imperative that students read and keep this information for future reference. Most advising is handled via e-mail. However, students may schedule a phone or face-to-face appointment with an advisor by clicking the Microsoft Bookings scheduling link for  the appropriate  academic advisor.

Students who have been admitted to the MSN program: You will be advised by a CONHI advisor; refer to the tables above to find your advisor.

Prospective students: prospective students may meet with a nursing advisor in person after making an appointment; see above for phone and email contacts for scheduling.
