Science and Engineering Academic Advising Center
Administrative Assistant
LOCATION: Center for Instruction, Suite 350
PHONE: (361)825-3928

Call the number above or stop by the center to schedule an appointment with your assigned Academic Advisor. Upon arrival, please check in at the center’s front desk.

Appointments: During busier periods, our Academic Advisors may get booked quickly, so it is highly encouraged to schedule an appointment ahead of time. There is no guarantee that you will be seen if there is no previously secured appointment.

Late Policy: Any student who arrives 15 minutes or later for an appointment may be asked to reschedule for the next available date. Showing up late could have a ripple effect on the Academic Advisor meeting with their students on schedule for the remainder of that day.  Please be courteous of other students and show up on time!

Not sure who your assigned Academic Advisor is?  Students are assigned by major and classification level. Please see below.
