The peak advising period occurs four weeks before the first day of the undergraduate registration period and extends through the last day of registration each semester. See the academic calendar for specific dates. During this time, advisors’ schedules are extremely full, so we have special policies and procedures in place.
If you do not show up or are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, you will be considered a no show. During peak advising, we have a three-strike rule. You will be notified via email after you receive a strike. After your third strike, your advisor will not see you to remove your advising bar, and you will have to register during the add/drop period.
During peak advising, advisors’ email inboxes are flooded. Please be patient, as it will take your advisor longer than normal to respond to your email during this time. If you have an urgent concern, please call the front desk at 512-232-8400 to schedule an appointment.
