Our Mission

University Advising partners with students, parents, and the community to facilitate autonomy, foster independence, and develop opportunities to engage in and refine the academic advising experience.

Engage. Refine. Advise.

Three simple words that envelop our entire philosophy of facilitating student growth, development, and success.

Engage. We meet students where they are, academically, socially, geographically.  From Raider Road Shows and Red Raider Orientation to teaching Raider Ready classes to intentional communication with students who may be searching for direction,  we actively engage students in conversations, action plans, and success strategies.

Refine.  Goals are vital to success.  TTUA provides the support and framework for you to look critically at your goals, your strengths, your talents, your intentions and find details and refinements to make those goals a reality.

Advise.  This doesn't mean picking courses for you.  Advising means coaching, facilitating, encouraging, guiding, questioning, pushing, collaborating.  You are in control of your college career; we are here to support, assist, bolster, and champion your success.

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.

TTU PreEngineering Program

Not just anyone can become an engineer so it is important that you have the foundation that you need to be successful there. The TTU PreEngineering Program exists to support the success of future engineers by providing highly personal, success-oriented and career-focused advising. As part of PreEngineering students will also have easy access to some of the best resources on campus. So what are you waiting for?

TTU PreLaw Program

With your drive and determination, plus a little direction and encouragement, it can be yours for the taking. While starting a degree in law may be four or more years away, preparing for law school starts today. The TTU Prelaw Program is here to walk with you through the application process, planning your finances, and preparing for the LSAT exam. Law School is waiting, and the competition will be fierce. Will you be ready?

TTU Legal Studies Minor

The interdisciplinary minor in Legal Studies formally guides and encourages the exploration of law and its influence in society. The curriculum blends challenging course options in students' home disciplines with relevant interdisciplinary electives to facilitate an interest in and an appreciation for the beneficial application of theory and research through the vehicle of law. Sound interesting?
