Texas Tech University Advising



Our Mission

"The department of Texas Tech University Advising exists to engage, equip, empower, and encourage students to explore and excel in their educational goals and beyond."

Our mission uses several e-words by design to help everyone understand what to expect from our advisors. We've outlined it in an advising syllabus for our students, but it is far more than that.

Everything we do is based on a specific learning objective and has deliberate assessments so we can know where we are successful as well as where there are opportunities to better serve our students.

Excellence is our benchmark. Average is not an option.


Advising Programs for the University Community



Choosing a major is an important step in your first year of college. By using the DISCOVERY! Program, you don't lose time and money. Instead, you spend your first year discovering who you are, what you want out of life, and creating an educational plan to get you there. "What major really fits you?" It is a big question, and we are here to help.
