Academic Advising

Professional academic advisors assist students from freshman to senior year in developing four year academic plans, understanding major degree requirements, minor options and study abroad opportunities. Academic advisors are assigned based on the student's last name.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

Students can meet with an advisor by appointment, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am-4:00pm. Schedule your 30-minute appointment by calling (817) 257-6772. Each semester students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to discuss academic programs of study and learn about campus resources. Advising is mandatory the first four semesters at TCU.
