»Update to Scheduling Advising Appointments

Your advisor is available as usual and would love to hear from you, especially if you have concerns. All advising appointments scheduled for the remainder of the semester will be held via Zoom. Once your appointment is scheduled, you will be sent a link to your UT e-mail account that you will click at the time of your scheduled appointment. If you have questions, please let your advisor know.

If you are a current UT student or a readmit, please use GradesFirst, available via MyUTK, to schedule your advising appointment. If you cannot find an appointment time, contact your advisor.

Purpose of Academic Advising

Faculty, administrators, and professional staff on this campus consider advising both a responsibility and an opportunity for enriching and enhancing each student’s pattern of learning and personal development. Central to the mission of academic advising at the university is teaching students to understand the purpose of the curriculum and fostering their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals, and career plans.
