UT students enroll (aka register) in classes during designated Registration periods each semester. Before Registration is the Advising period. This is when students work with their program advisor to determine what classes to take for an upcoming semester, optionally with assistance from their program advisor.

How does it work?During an advising period, you will submit a course Advising Form

  • Before the advising period begins, you must update your Program of Work as it is needed to determine courses.
  • After reviewing your Program of Work and the UT Course Schedule online, you can optionally meet with your faculty mentor or Area Chair to discuss your course plans.
  • Once you've determined your courses, submit the EDP Advising Form. It will route to your program's Area Chair for review.


  • Your Area Chair will review your form, and approve or request changes. You'll get an email stating whether your form was approved or denied - if any changes are needed, you can submit a new form. 
  • Once approved, you will receive an automatic approval email with the classes from the form listed (for reference to use during course registration), and your Advising Bar will be removed.
  • If you need to make any changes to your planned courses, you must submit a new Advising Form

How do I know what courses to take?

To determine what to take for an upcoming semester, you will need to review your Program of Work and the UT Course Schedule, and we recommend you check in with your faculty mentor or about your plans as well. Remember to update your Program of Work before advising!
