Academic Advising Team


Dallas, Online, Mobile, and Extension Students (Advising by Degree)

The Dallas Campus Advising Center is going through transitions (both staff and location), so we appreciate your patience over the upcoming months. We still seek to serve you with excellence, but this might take a bit more time and it might mean through fewer formats than you are used to. 

  1. If you have not done so, please review your degree specific advising page (see Degree Advising to the right) for answers to questions most commonly asked.
  2. Then, if you have a general and quick question call 214-887-5080.
  3. If you have multiple questions, want a degree audit, or want to know if you are on track to graduate, kindly send an email to Advising. 
  4. Finally, where appointments are needed or requested, Academic Advisors will provide the appropriate direction.
