Our mission is to guide undergraduate students in developing and implementing sound academic plans. We are here to help ensure that your plans are consistent with your strengths, interests, values and your academic and career goals. Our purpose is to encourage you to become self-directed learners and decision-makers.
A major contributor to academic success is building strong professional relationships at the University of Tennessee. For that reason, we will guide you to academic advisors and faculty based on your progress in your academic career.
Arts and Sciences Advising Services advisors are assigned for the following student populations:
- Arts and Sciences students who are officially declared majors in the College. During your 4th term, you will be assigned a departmental faculty advisor in your major.
- University Exploratory students who are unsure of the major or career path they want to pursue.
- Transfer students who are officially declared majors in Arts and Sciences or Exploratory. After completing your first semester and declaring a major, you will be assigned departmental faculty advisors.
- Pre-health and pre-law students who plan to enter a professional program following completion of their undergraduate degree.
We welcome the opportunity to assist you in clarifying your academic and career goals and developing a plan for success. To learn more about scheduling an appointment with an Arts and Sciences advisor, click here.
