Academic Advising

Click here if you need information about picking out your classes. You can also get information about how classes from TVCC transfer to other universities!


The main purpose of academic advising is to help students develop a meaningful educational plan which is compatible with their life goals. Here are some ways we can help you with these decisions!

  • Each academic term the student meets with an advisor to review progress toward the educational goals that have been established.
  • The student and advisor refine goals and objectives, reach an understanding of what choices are available, and determine the consequences of different courses of action.
  • Advisement consists of:
  • course selection
  • understanding and meeting institutional requirements
  • providing clear and accurate information regarding institutional policies, procedures, resources, and programs


TVCC participates in the Texas common course numbering system which is designed to assist students who are transferring between institutions within the system.
