When / Why should I see an advisor?

Advising for the next semester begins after the 12th class day, and is available on an ongoing basis, not just during registration. Only entry-level students and students who are on scholastic probation receive advising bars, and must meet with an advisor in person before they can register for classes. CS majors who have been promoted from entry-level and who are in good academic standing do not receive advising bars and are not required to see an advisor before registration. Advisors are available all year to assist with degree planning and course selection, help students who are struggling academically, provide information about UT's numerous resources, and help students facing non-academic problems.
