Academic Advising


Getting started with Advising

Please read the information contained in the section which best describes your situation.

You will have the opportunity to schedule an advising appointment for semester planning during an “appointment campaign” designed especially for you. You will receive an email two weeks prior to the start of your campaign (see chart below) which will include a link to appointment options. If you are unable to meet with an advisor during your campaign window, you can schedule an appointment during any Open Advising period listed below.

To ensure you meet with the appropriate advisor for semester planning, please call 865-974-8194 (Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.) to schedule your appointment during any Open Advising period listed below. During peak advising, open advising appointments will fill up quickly, so please call two to three weeks in advance of your desired visit.
