TSI vRRO Advising

TSI Advising












I Need TSI Advising, Now What?

TSI advising will occur the day before your scheduled vRRO session. If your session starts on a Sunday, TSI advising will take place on the Friday before.

Prior to your vRRO session, you will need to watch the TSI informational video. This video will go over the TSI program, what you can expect while taking a TSI course, and contact information for various offices relating to TSI. You will not be scheduled an individual advising appointment until you have watched the video presentation.

Once you watch the information video, a TSI advisor will follow up with an individual appointment time. Again, this appointment will take place the day before your scheduled vRRO session. During the individual appointment, a TSI advisor will go over your specific TSI requirements and answer any questions you may have.

TSI advising will take place via Zoom. Information regarding how to attend the appointment will be emailed to your TTU email address prior to your scheduled vRRO session.

Your TSI hold will not be moved for registration until you have watched the TSI Informational Video and met with a TSI advisor to sign a TSI contract.

During your TSI advising appointment, you will need to have access to a computer with an internet connection. Additionally, you will need to know your eRaider username and password. This is the same username and password you use to check your TTU email and log in to Raiderlink.

All updates regarding your TSI advising session will be provided by email. Please be sure to check your TTU email regularly. Haven't activated your email yet? No worries! Review the TTU email activation instructions provided by IT.

Do you plan on having a parent or guardian attend the TSI advising appointment with you? Make sure you fill out a FERPA form before your advising appointment.
