Mission Statement

The Moody Office of Undergraduate Education endeavors to create collaborative, trusting relationships between students and staff, and to develop programs that contribute to student success. We empower students to engage with the vast array of academic opportunities at the University of Texas and encourage flexibility and integrity as they develop academic, career, and personal aspirations.

Moody Undergraduate Education Values

TRUST – We believe that the creation of strong advisor-student relationships based on trust is essential to student development, retention, and academic success.

EMPOWERMENT – We believe in providing tools, not directives, to students and challenging them to take initiative in goal setting and problem solving, offering support and encouragement along the way.

ACCURACY – We believe that providing accurate and timely information is essential to ensuring that students meet graduation requirements in the most efficient manner possible.

INTEGRITY – We believe in holding students accountable for their actions, and likewise holding ourselves accountable by remaining available, informed, and realistic when addressing concerns with students.

ADVOCACY – We value our role as student advocates, providing referrals to other campus offices and connecting students with appropriate resources to ensure the safety, health, and academic opportunity of all individuals we advise.

The Student Advising Office oversees all academic advising in the college, in collaboration with the academic departments. Our staff maintains your academic records, provides general information about University academic policies and procedures, prepares your degree audit and will certify your graduation application once you have fulfilled the requirements. In addition, we manage course adds/drop requests and withdrawals, course substitutions, tuition rebates, appeals, scholastic probation, and many other academic matters.

Our academic advisors can also counsel you on personal difficulties should they arise, and direct you to other important campus and community resources that will enhance your overall learning experience at The University of Texas at Austin.

Student Advising also coordinates special student-related programs and services including recruitment, prospective student information sessions, Parent's Day, Honors Day, New Student Orientation, First-Year Interest Groups, Honors Colloquium, and Commencement.
