Departmental Advising

Advising for UTA students with over 30 hours, or transfer students.


Academic advisors help students explore their interests and connect them to critical resources that provide the tools for informed decision making aligned with academic, career, and community minded goals.

First-year students and students exploring major options are advised within the University Advising Center. Once declared, students work with academic advisors housed within our Colleges or Schools. University Studies majors are advised within the Division of Student Success.  

The responsibilities of the academic advisor at UT Arlington are to: 
• Empower students to discover and attain their academic and life goals;
• Serve as an advocate for student success; 
• Serve as an interface to university services; and 
• Provide accurate information about academic standards and requirements in a timely and efficient manner.

Establishing a strong connection with an academic advisor puts students on the right track for academic success.
