Welcome! Our goal at the UTPB Academic Advising Center is to help you select the best program and develop an academic plan that will enable you to have the best experience at the university, be successful and graduate on time, ready to meet your personal and professional goals. The advising structure adopted at UTPB is the 2+2 plan. This means that, normally a student will work with professional advisors for the first two years of his or her time at UTPB, after which the student is assigned a faculty advisor in their major, whom she or he works with to complete the final two years of coursework. Students are required to meet with their advisors at least once a semester to review their progress and plan for the subsequent semester.
