At the University of Texas at San Antonio academic advising is an essential part of teaching and research. Advisors engage students in their planning, teach them how to navigate relevant academic resources, and encourage them to take responsibility for decisions about their academic progress. Academic advising is a partnership between students and academic advisors.
UTSA Academic Advisors offer academic advising and guidance to empower students to realize their full potential. For this reason, each student has an assigned professional academic advisor so the student can establish a strong mentoring relationship with her or his advisor, whom he or she may consult on all academic and curricular issues.
