ttu HS Academic Advising

The Academic Advising Office

The Academic Advising Office offers a unique approach to supporting students in their degree completion. The Human Sciences advising team is organized by major rather than last name in order to allow each academic advisor to specialize in the majors that they work with. For students, this provides an exceptional opportunity to build meaningful relationships with their advisor from someone who is knowledgeable about their field.

Director of Advising and Retention, Ashlee Brown says that their office adheres to an approach that values individual strengths and encourages student potential.

"We care about our students being the best they can be while acknowledging that each has their own unique set of challenges, experiences, and life situations," Ashlee said.

Ashlee wants students to know that the advising team is here to help with each advisor working tirelessly to ensure that each and every student is taken care of the best way possible.

What should students know about the advising office? Ashlee notes that their team is knowledgeable about catalog content, campus resources, and all advising processes.

"You can feel confident that if we don't know the answer, we know someone who does," Ashlee said. "We assist with course planning, major and career exploration, academic recovery, and career preparation."
