The Biosciences Advising Center oversees students pursuing degrees in Biology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Medical Laboratory Science, and Environmental Science. As an office, we strive to provide a sensitive and supportive environment for students by:

  • Completing long-term degree planning with career and personal development goals in mind
  • Explaining University and College policies and procedures
  • Encouraging the use of University services and resources

We are available Monday through Friday from 8:00AM - 4:30PM.1 Feel free to drop by during these times to schedule an appointment, initiate a drop form, or ask a question of the front desk staff.

For appointments: Please call the advising center at (512)-471-4920 to schedule an appointment or use the online scheduling link provided to you by your assigned advisor via email. Advisors do not make appointments through email.

Walk-in Wednesdays: Your assigned advisor is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Walk-in sessions are designed to be 15 minutes or less. Our less busy times for walk-in advising tend to be in the early morning or late afternoon. Advisor availability varies. Contact the front desk for the availability of your assigned advisor.

Please note: We typically do not take appointments during the first 12 class days of each semester, the week before registration, or throughout the two weeks of registration. During these times, we see students on a walk-in only basis.
