General Advising Information
Academic advising is a process that students go through each semester in order to select courses for upcoming terms. Advising occurs at least twice a year, but students are strongly encouraged to visit with their advisor as frequently as needed for academic assistance.
If you're new to Texas Wesleyan, you'll receive your initial academic advising by attending either a freshman or transfer orientation.
How can your advisor help you?
Although the main role of an advisor is to help you select courses, think of your advisor as a tour guide to the college experience. In addition to helping you navigate your degree plan, advisors can help you solve non-academic issues by making appropriate referrals.
Who is your advisor?
At Texas Wesleyan, we have a centralized Freshman Advising Office which serves all students until they complete 24 credit hours, typically within their first year of studies.
After completion of their first year, students are assigned faculty advisors within their major's department. Students who have not yet declared a major will continue to be advised through Freshman Advising and will work directly with the Director of Advising & New Student Services.
Once you've been assigned a specific advisor, you can use the "Email Your Advisor" link in RamLink or contact the Freshman Advising Office for assistance.
