Undergraduate Advising

Our office focuses on the support and guidance of undergraduate students as they create a plan for their academic pursuits while at Texas A&M and beyond. We work to provide undergraduates with information necessary to make decisions in alignment with their goals, while also helping students fulfill the requirements to attain their degree from Texas A&M.

 For our new incoming first-year and transfer students: please be sure to schedule your New Student Conference (NSC) as soon as you’re able. The second day of your conference will primarily be spent with us in advising to familiarize you with our academic requirements, the program and department, and to aid you with your first-semester registration. Please do not schedule an advising meeting with us prior to your NSC, as academic advising will be a part of your NSC experience.

Advising Hours

There are two ways to meet with an academic advisor: appointments and virtual drop-in hours.

Advising appointments are scheduled through Navigate website or Navigate app and must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. If you schedule an appointment but are unable to keep it, please be sure to cancel your appointment as soon as possible.

Virtual drop-in hours are windows of time when an advisor is available to meet with students on a first-come, first-served basis. These hours are ideal for quick questions or clarifications, or if you’re unable to find a timely appointment that works for your schedule. If you need the link to join the Zoom meeting, please email the advisor.

Advising Schedule: 

  • Mondays: 9:00 to 11:00 am for virtual drop-in advising
  • Tuesdays: 9:00 to 11:00 am for virtual drop-ins & 2:00 to 4:00 pm for appointments
