Advising

Providing exceptional, personalized academic support to UT PGE students is our top priority. We strive to give you the individual care and support you need to make informed decisions about your degree plan while encouraging you to consider opportunities that will enrich your academic experience on the Forty Acres. We value the experiences and ideas you bring to the department and aim to help you meet — and even exceed — your goals.

New Students

Incoming PGE students will attend advising and course registration during new student orientation. Please be sure to register for UT Orientation after accepting your offer of admission. Also make sure you have a laptop computer that meets our minimum hardware requirements.

For general advising questions after you’ve attended your New Student Orientation, contact your academic advisor directly or email PGE Advising.
