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 10 minutes late to your appointment, you will be considered a no-show. During peak advising, if you no-show for three appointments, your advisor will not see you to remove your advising bar until the last day of early registration, and only if his/her schedule permits. If there is no availability in your advisor’s schedule, you will not be able to register until the next available registration access 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.
