Meeting with an BAAS Advisor

To meet with an academic advisor, please review the following:

  • Attended the mandatory online information session
  • You are encouraged to reach out to an academic advisor at any stage in your application process to Texas State; however, please be aware that before you send your official transcripts to the University, the advisors are unable to provide exact information regarding how your credits transfer to a BAAS degree. Once your transfer credits are assessed by Admissions and deemed appropriate to use at Texas State, the advisors can give you more solid information on which courses may or may not be able to be used.
  • Advisors are unable to assist with the Capstone. Please refer to the Capstone page.
  • The Advising Centers do NOT accept walk-in appointments
  • Understand that appointments with advisors book up fast! Usually one-two week waiting periods.
  • If you attend courses at the Round Rock Campus, you must meet with Jonathan Murphy.
  • Portia Gottschall is NOT an academic advisor
  • Refer to the Registration Requests before meeting with an advisor

  • A degree audit lists all of the requirements for your degree, including (but not limited to):

    • Minimum number of hours required
    • Advanced hours required
    • Writing intensive hours required
    • Residency hours (taken at Texas State) required
    • Core requirements
    • Major requirements
    • Minor requirements

    The degree audit will note if a requirement has or has not been fulfilled, or if it is in progress. This is a useful tool to track progress toward degree completion.
