Academic 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.

Office Hours

All of our advising is taking place online for the Summer 2020 terms. We are utilizing appointments for all meetings at this time, so please refer to the Navigate website for our most up-to-date availability.

Current students can schedule appointments via the Navigate website or Navigate app. Appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. However, if your schedule changes suddenly, you can cancel or reschedule your appointment; we simply ask for as much advance notice as is feasible.

If you would like to declare a major in Sociology, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us after verifying you meet the requirements to change into Sociology.

If you would like to request the addition of a Sociology minor, please verify you meet the requirements to add a minor, then you can submit our online request form. We will review and respond to requests as quickly as possible.

Please email our office at SOCIadvising@tamu.edu with any general questions or requests you have.
