Welcome! The Geography advising office is located in CLA 1.216. It is generally open Monday through Friday from 9am to 4:30pm. Undergraduate advising is available for a variety of issues that includes degree requirements, course availability, academic policies, petitions, major selection, internships and referrals to campus resources.
Please try to obtain advising before registration occurs. Most times of year advising is available on a walk-in basis, but starting two weeks before registration advising will be on an appointment only basis. Please call 512-232-6344 to make an appointment. Also remember, advising is available all year and you are welcome to visit me during all times of year. You may run your own degree audit online through IDA (Interactive Degree Audit): http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/ida/.
Here are some additional steps to take to help prepare for registration:
