Academic Advising

The University of Texas at Austin views sound academic advising as a significant responsibility in educating students. The relationship established between advisor and student should be friendly, helpful, and professional. By meeting with an advisor, a student has the opportunity to:

Learn about educational options, degree requirements, and academic policies and procedures.

Clarify educational objectives.

Plan and pursue programs consistent with abilities, interests, and life goals.

Utilize all resources of the University to best advantage.

Ultimately, the student is responsible for seeking adequate academic advice, for knowing and meeting degree requirements, and for enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward a degree.

Frequent adviser contact provides students with current academic information and promotes progress toward educational goals. The University supports that progress and encourages effective academic advising campus-wide.


Integrated Career Advising

Fine Arts Career Services, a division of the Office of the Dean, helps fine arts majors explore career options, plan for careers, and develop strategies for seeking jobs upon graduation.

While students can seek assistance from Fine Arts Career Services at any time, all College of Fine Arts students are required to attend programming or career advising at least three times during their academic career:

1. First semester of sophomore year

2. Second semester of junior year

3. Final semester of senior year
