Students in the School of Media and Communication are advised by professional academic advisors and faculty advisors. New students (up to 30 credits), transfer students in their first semester, interdepartmental majors, undeclared students, and students on academic probation make advising appointments in SMC Student Affairs/Advising, located on the ground floor of Annenberg Hall. All other students are advised by faculty in their respective departments. Consult your departmental office for assignment to the appropriate faculty advisor.
Academic advisors attempt to avoid errors when advising students about their program requirements, but schools and colleges cannot assume liability for errors in advising. Therefore, students must assume primary responsibility for knowing the requirements for their degree and for acquiring current information about their academic status.
Most students will be eligible to register for classes online via Self Service Banner through the TU Portal. However, all students should meet with an advisor prior to the eligible registration period.
Students preparing to graduate must file the necessary paperwork one semester prior to the graduation date. At that time, an appointment should be made in SMC Student Affairs/Advising to complete a graduation review and application for graduation.
