The UTSA Undergraduate Catalog and the UTSA Graduate Catalog provide information about degrees offered by the colleges, degree requirements for all majors, courses offered in the departments, and the faculty in each area.
UTSA views sound academic advising as a significant responsibility in educating its students. Students are encouraged to seek academic advising to ensure that they complete degree requirements in an appropriate and timely manner. The partnership established with an academic advisor is intended to assist students with learning about their options, degree requirements, academic policies and procedures, and appropriate University resources. This supportive, helpful relationship will assist students to plan and pursue programs that support their interests and educational goals.
