Academic Advising

Professional academic advisors assist students from freshman to senior year in navigating and developing four-year academic plans, understanding major degree requirements, minor options and study abroad opportunities. Academic advisors are assigned based on the student's last name.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

Advising is mandatory the first four semesters at TCU. Students can meet with an advisor by appointment, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am-4:00pm. Schedule your 30-minute appointment by calling (817) 257-6772. Each semester students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to discuss academic programs of study and learn about campus resources. Advising is mandatory the first four semesters at TCU.

Neeley Navigators

An integral part of the Neeley Academic Advising Center, Neeley Navigators are upper class business students, trained to answer questions about Neeley prerequisites and curricular information. But more than that, they are ready to share their distinct student perspectives about the Neeley classroom experience, curriculum, resources, and community. Navigators will not discuss an advisee’s grades or individualized student plans and are not meant to replace the professional advisors.

Navigators 2019

The Neeley Navigators can give advice on:

  • How to prepare for the Neeley Admission process
  • How they decided what major to pursue
  • How they got the most out of their Neeley experience
  • How to navigate my.tcu portal (e.g. enrolling, dropping a class, P/NC, etc.)
  • What TCU core curriculum options they found most rewarding
  • What extracurriculars added the most to their education
  • How to transfer courses into TCU

Neeley Navigators look forward to meeting you and answer questions about your own path to the Neeley School of Business. Navigators are available Monday-Thursday from 10:00am-3:00pm on the first floor of the Neeley Building in the Rogers Rotunda. Navigators may also be contacted at neeleynavigators@tcu.edu.
