Academic Advising

The Vick Center is holding appointments online through Zoom as well as in person. Schedule online to make a 30-minute appointment. If you need a phone appointment, please email your advisor or our main advising address.

If you are a Discovery Scholar, please email discoveryscholars@austin.utexas.edu to contact your DSP coach.

From May 4 – 6, drop-ins will be held for UGS students only. UGS students will meet with their individual advisor to assess their unique needs. At set times (mid-semester deadline, registration, OTE deadline), your advisor will email you their drop-in hours. Please review your inbox for that information.

Learn about registration advising policies.

Students who are enrolled in UGS are assigned an advisor. You must meet with your advisor at least twice a semester for a major exploration appointment and a registration appointment.

While the Vick Center advisors serve non-UGS students in transition between majors, non-UGS students must see their current college’s advisor for processes like clearing a registration bar, Q-dropping, or withdrawing, changing a class to pass/fail, etc.

Emails from your advisor and from the Vick Center contain important academic information, deadlines, and events.
