Advising for Current Students
During their first year at UTC, students advised by the Center for Academic Support and Advisement will meet with their advisors a minimum of twice a semester.
Students are contacted through their Mocs email address with instructions for selecting an appointment time.
The purposes of these meetings are:
Discuss the purpose of academic advising, transitioning to college, adjusting to classes and campus resources to support academic success, such as tutoring and supplemental instruction.
Discuss selection of major, course registration and progress toward graduation.
Upon the student and advisor jointly deciding on the student’s course schedule, the advisor will remove the advising hold so the student can register for spring semester classes.
Discuss the previous semester’s academic performance, adjustment to current classes, campus resources available to support academic success, such as academic coaching, tutoring and Supplemental Instruction.
Similar to the second meeting in the fall, students speak with their advisor about selection of major, course registration and progress toward graduation. Upon the student and advisor jointly deciding on the student’s course schedule, the advisor will remove the advising hold so the student can register for fall semester classes.
Advising After the First Year
Beginning in their second year, students are advised by their major departments. Spring semester advisement meetings prepare students for this transition and provide contact information.
