Academic Advising

All Dick and Mary Lewis Kleberg College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Human Sciences undergraduate students must schedule a mandatory advising appointment with their academic advisor before the end of every fall and spring semester.  During the fall you will be advised for spring courses and during the spring, you will be advised for summer and fall courses.

Your appointment can be scheduled no sooner than one week before your registration date opens.  Advisors will advise students by appointment only.  Please check the Priority Registration Schedule for your registration date.
