Academic Advising

The University of Texas at Arlington MSAT program is dedicated to the overall success and retention of our students. One process that contributes to this goal is by providing academic advising to prospective and enrolled students.

Advising for the Prospective Student

We welcome and encourage prospective students to sit for an optional academic advising session before program application and start. It is an opportunity to discuss the MSAT degree plan, program exam pass rates, job placement rates, clinical education, and to take a tour of the UTA MSAT educational facilities. Those students who have not yet applied or enrolled in the MSAT program are welcome to contact the MSAT academic advisor to schedule a face-to-face, phone, or Skype advising appointment.

Advising for the Enrolled Student

Currently enrolled students may schedule an academic advising appointment at any time, and especially if they have questions concerning any of the following topics: Academic schedule planning from initial admission to graduation; Academic progress monitoring; Interpretation of institutional policies and procedures; Approval of education transactions (service indicators, course registration, add/dropping of courses; Substitutions; Graduation requirements, etc.); Referral of students to other university or area resources as needed.
