Your Academic Advisor

Your academic advisor is a department or college-based faculty or staff member. When you meet with him or her, you will discuss curricular choices while progressing toward achieving educational goals.

At the time of application for admission to UT Knoxville, students apply to a specific college and major. If you are unsure about choosing a major, select the Exploratory Track for that college. If you are uncertain about a college choice, select University and the University Exploratory Track.

Students who are admitted as University Students and have not yet declared an interest in a specific college are advised by the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Center with the assistance of advisors in other colleges and Career Services.

Advising centers and designated offices in each college handle all freshmen and a substantial amount of sophomore advising; major advisors within the college, working closely with the advising center, guide advanced students. At all levels, campus-wide guidelines for good advising are supplemented by specific college standards, guidelines, and evaluation. To locate an academic advisor in your area of study, see below.
