All of our advisors are major specific, so depending on what your major is we may have one or more advisor(s) that you can meet with.
If you are not sure who your advisor is, you can look through our Advisors by Major directory.
Arts & Sciences students are required to meet with their advisor at least once a semester, prior to registration for the next term. These advising appointments are opportunities to help with course planning, discuss degree requirements, discuss academic concerns, provide information about campus resources, consider internship opportunities, track graduation progress and much more. While only one appointment is required, we encourage students to meet with their advisor as often as necessary to ensure success!
- Helpful tips before scheduling your advising appointment
Prior to registration, students are assigned a time ticket, which is a date and time the registration system will be available for changes—this is known as your Registration Date. Time tickets are assigned with priority to students scheduled to graduate during the upcoming term and then to continuing students according to the total credit hours earned (more hours=earlier time ticket). Finding your Registration Date (Time Ticket):
- Log into MyMocsNet (my.utc.edu)
- Click on the “Academics Tab”
- On the left side of the page, you’ll see text that says: “Prepare for Registration”—click there.
- Click Prepare for Registration again
- Choose the next semester.
- Once posted, your registration date will appear on this page
Pay attention to your registration date and schedule your advising appointment accordingly. You will not be able to register unless you’ve met with an advisor. Schedule your advising appointment early!
Make sure you know who your advisor is. You can find this on your MyMocsDegree, Student Profile on your My Mocs Net, Advisors by major or on our advisement staff page.
