Academic advising at Texas State University is a student-centered, collaborative process which promotes the academic success and growth of undergraduate students while respecting individuals’ diverse interests, abilities, and goals. To view the Texas State Academic Advising PPS 3.01, click here.
The University College Advising Center provides academic advising to Texas State University students who are in the process of exploring and selecting a major. In addition, we assist students in the process of meeting admission requirements for the McCoy College of Business Administration. We also work with students pursuing a Bachelor of General Studies degree.
Texas State University officials place departmental advising holds to assure students receive appropriate academic advising assistance before they register for courses.
The University College Advising Center places departmental advising holds on students with the following majors who meet the listed criteria:
Exploratory - because they have accumulated 30 semester credit hours or more and need to discuss their major options.
Exploratory-Professional - because they have accumulated 45 semester credit hours or more, have less than a 2.50 overall GPA, and need to discuss the admission criteria for the McCoy College of Business Administration.
General Studies - because they are projected to graduate in one to two semesters, and we need to verify their degree requirements and progression.
If you have a departmental advising hold and fit one of the above descriptions, schedule a meeting with your academic advisor in the University College Advising Center. Click here to learn how to schedule.
