Support for Your Success

“..Academic advisors offer students the personal connection to the institution that the research indicates is vital to student retention and student success (Nutt, 2003).”

Identified by The University of Texas System as one of the three pillars of student success, academic advising is a crucial component that promotes student persistence and retention.

The University Advising Center (UAC) team is dedicated to providing data, resources, leadership, and professional development to all professional academic advisors, faculty advisors, and college/departmental administration to ensure valuable academic advising is an institutional priority.  The UAC is committed to creating an advising community that unifies academic departments and colleges and supports all undergraduate advisors, and through them, all undergraduate students. The UAC, through ongoing campus collaboration and partnership, will provide recommendations that advances the field of academic advising at UT Tyler.
