Advising Process in the MAC
Most first year students will be seen in the Mustangs Advising Center (The MAC) or in a professional college. After the first year, you will be advised by your major department.

Continuing students, who have not yet been transitioned to their major department, will make an appointment to see a MAC Academic Advisor. Come in during early advising to get a head start. You can schedule an appointment by calling 940-397-4684.
Once your Academic Advisor has approved your classes, you will be given an advisor approved schedule with a list of approved recommended classes to take for the semester you will be attending.
