Academic Advising at The University of Memphis 

Advisors wear Tiger Blue! We have a vision of a dynamic, collaborative campus environment in which academic advising is valued and makes a positive impact on the academic success of our students.

The purpose of academic advising is to facilitate the intellectual and personal development of our students, to enhance their academic performance, and to ensure student progress toward graduation by assisting them in achieving the following objectives:

  • choosing, clarifying, planning and achieving their life goals;
  • exploring academic options so that they can make meaningful short- and long-term decisions
  • identifying a major program to achieve educational, career, and life goals
  • selecting courses that integrate their educational and personal goals
  • assuming responsibility for current information about University degree requirements, including General Education, academic policies, practices, programs and support services.

Advising Tip: Ask for help when needed.
