Academic Advising Information
The undergraduate advisors and the graduate program coordinator are here to meet with you to assist and help you through completion of your degree program. Specific contact information for your degree program area is provided below.
Undergraduate Advising Appointment Information
To make an appointment with an undergraduate advisor for our undergraduate programs, please access the links below. It is very important that you make an appointment and not just “drop by” for advising as advisors are also instructors in the department and have certain times available for advising. We expect students to be on time for their appointment and call ahead or email the advisor if you need to cancel or reschedule. We also expect students to be prepared for their advising appointment by bringing needed documents such as updated degree plans when discussing courses for the next semester. Advising is a two-way process meaning that students also have responsibilities in the process.
Students MUST set up appointments through the scheduling system. Students are able to schedule from any computer or mobile phone with internet access. When scheduling, please be as detailed as possible in the comments section so the advisors can better assist you. The scheduling system pulls directly from calendar availability, so if there is no availability showing on the scheduling system, there is no availability on our calendars.
Graduate Student Advising
Are you interested in attending the beautiful campus of Texas A&M, looking to connect one-on-one with our graduate faculty and other graduate students?
The best way to determine if the ALEC Department is the right place for you is to have conversations. The Department will host a Prospective Student Recruitment Symposium ever fall. Whether you are here locally or at a distance, you may contact the graduate coordinator for more information or to schedule an appointment.
The 2019 Prospective Student Recruitment Symposium will be November 11-12, 2019. Master’s candidates are welcome and encouraged to attend. Interested doctoral candidates who meet the minimum criteria and have submitted all required application materials by the posted deadline, including GRE scores, will be considered for an invitation to attend the recruiting symposium to participate in faculty interviews. The symposium provides opportunities for prospective students to meet faculty and students, attend research presentations, and the opportunity to meet other potential students. For specific details, contact the graduate program coordinator and RSVP now.
Current students are always encouraged to schedule visits with the graduate coordinator at every semester and periodically to make sure degree requirements are being met. To schedule an appointment, send an email.
