All Students Must Be Advised Every Semester!
Academic Advising is a process by which advisors verify the feasibility of your academic plan for the upcoming semester and approve your course selection. They do not select courses for you; instead they assist you in navigating the pathway laid out by your degree plan.
Before visiting your advisor for academic advising you should use your degree plan along with the online schedule booklet in order to select your courses.
The Student Support Center advises students according to the below criteria:
The CHS Student Support Center collaborates with the University’s Academic Advising Center (AAC). All students with less than 46 cumulative credits are advised by the AAC. To contact the AAC, please visit http://academics.utep.edu/Default.aspx?tabid=17416 or call them at (915) 747-5290.
If you are have 46 cumulative credits or more, you will be seen by advisors within the Student Support Center or faculty advisors in your departments as follows:.
