Academic Advising

Academic advising is an interactive partnership between a student and an academic advisor. Through teaching and learning experiences, the student sets goals, acquires information and services to make decisions consistent with interests, goals, abilities and degree requirements.

  • Interpreting and conveying Texas A&M University’s mission to students
  • Supporting the educational policies, procedures and values of the department, college and university; likewise, academic advising relies on the support and resources of the university, college and department
