Looking for your virtual advising time slot?

Students will receive an email or emails from their academic college prior to their virtual advising session date. Email(s) will include information about how to prepare, tips for success, and their individual advising appointment. Arrival and amount of these emails will depend on the academic college, so students MUST check and read their UT email account for this information. If a student has not received an email from their academic college by 9 a.m. the day of their session beginning, please have them email orientation.utk.eduLearn more about Phase 1: Virtual Advising here.
