Current Freshman and Sophomores

You will need to meet with an advisor prior to registering for courses each semester. An Advising HOLD will be placed on your registration until you meet with your advisor.

Juniors and Seniors

Students over 60 hours are typically advised by a faculty advisor. Here is that information, by department.

Department of Teacher and Bilingual Education (TBED)

Juniors: You will meet with your advisor prior to applying for and beginning the Educator Preparation Program. Upon acceptance into the Educator Preparation Program, students are assigned a faculty advisor who will guide the student through graduation.

Department of Health & Kinesiology (EC-12)

You will meet with your faculty advisor prior to applying for and beginning the Educator Preparation Program. Upon acceptance into the Educator Preparation Program, students should schedule an advising appointment with their faculty advisor to receive proper instruction and signatures for the program.

Non-certification degree plans in Health & Kinesiology

You will be assigned a faculty advisor at the completion of your 60 hours. Your new faculty advisor will guide you through the rest of your coursework to graduation.

Transfer students

Students with 30 credit hours or more have two options. They can arrange to attend a Transfer Session Orientation to receive general and vital information about Texas A&M University-Kingsville and then meet with their assigned advisor or they can contact an advisor directly and schedule an individual appointment. Please make an appointment to see an advisor before coming to campus. Please bring a copy of all your college transcripts and test scores (if applicable) to your session/appointment. To register and find out more about a Transfer Session please visit http://www.tamuk.edu/transferthursdays/

How do I meet with an advisor?

College of Education and Human Performance (CEHP) advisors meet with students either on a walk-in basis or by appointment. There are a few days each year (such as freshman orientation) when the advisors are busy, so we encourage you to schedule an appointment with each advisor to avoid waiting or not being seen.

Graduate Students

Graduate students are advised by faculty members in their program areas. Please contact your department for more information.
