Types of Advising

Texas Wesleyan has a shared advising system where the Academic Advising Office helps students with aspects related to their class schedule and faculty advise students on how they can translate what they learn into a successful career.


Faculty Advising

To help students get the most out of their degree and translate their education in to a successful career, each student has a faculty advisor who:

  • Serves as a mentor
  • Helps determine if the major is a good fit
  • Develops a career path and identifies classes to meet student goals
  • Shares insights as experts in their field

Meet with your faculty advisor

We recommend you meet with your faculty advisor once a semester during his or her office hours to talk through your goals. To make your advising as productive as possible, be ready to talk about your career goals and challenges.

Did you know you already have a faculty advisor? You've been assigned one based on your last name and major.
