Academic Advising

Academic Advising is an important resource for students at Texas A&M University at Qatar. Academic advisors are key in assisting students to achieve academic success by providing academic guidance and counseling. Students are required to meet with an academic advisor for preregistration advising each semester, but are encouraged to meet as needed to take advantage of their experience and expertise. While it is the student’s responsibility to ask for assistance, our academic advisors are able to identify additional needs and connect students to campus resources.

Mission

The primary mission of the Academic Advising Office at Texas A&M University at Qatar is to provide academic advising and support that will guide each student to develop their educational and personal goals. The development of these strategies will serve students throughout their academic and professional career. Individualized relationships between students and advisers encourage an environment of open communication and trust.

Spring 2024 Advising Dates (course planning for summer/fall 2024): 21 Jan. – 15 Feb.
