UT Tyler Advising

You will have both a college advisor and a faculty advisor. You will want to see both your college advisor and faculty advisor often.


If you are a new transfer student with more than 30 hours, please make your first appointment with a CAS college advisor. The CAS Advising Center may be reached at casadvising@uttyler.edu, or at 903.566.7389 or 903.565.5780.


Your college advisor helps you navigate the core curriculum and university requirements, and can help you with any other questions you might have, even if you are not sure who to ask.

Change of major and change of minor forms must be signed by your college advisor, and adjustments to your Patriot Advisement Report can also be made by your college advisor.


Your faculty advisor is a faculty member and specialist from your area of interest. Your faculty advisor helps you navigate the choice of classes in your major area, and advises you about research opportunities, travel study opportunities, and career opportunities in your area. Your faculty advisors want to know what your interests are. What do you want to do?


You might also have a faculty advisor for your minor area.


How do I make an appointment with my college advisor?

It is always best to make an appointment ahead of time rather than to walk in. Nevertheless, we do see students on a walk-in basis as often as we are able. Please contact Dr. Michael Millett at mmillett@uttyler.edu or at 903.566.7389, Miss Whitney Sharman at wsharman@uttyler.edu or at 903.565.5780 for an appointment.

Who is my faculty advisor?

Each department has its own way of assigning faculty advisors. To learn who your faculty advisor is, please visit the office of your major.

Once you are matched with a faculty advisor, this information can be added to your myUTTyler record. Simply send an email to casadvising@uttyler.edu and we will add your faculty advisor information to your record.
