Schieffer College Advising

Academic advising

Academic advising is a key component to helping students graduate. Our goal is to help you succeed academically so that you can fulfill your dreams and meet your potential. Because advising is a shared responsibility between an advisor and the student, professional advisors help students integrate information so they can make well-informed academic decisions.

The Bob Schieffer College of Communication Academic Advisor works with and is available to students throughout the entire TCU experience. The advisors assist students with developing academic plans, exploring major and career options, navigating transitions and overcoming challenges.

What can my academic advisor help with?
