COVID-19 Update Regarding COSE Advising Center Operations

Online advising for COSE students

In response to COVID-19, the College of Science and Engineering Academic Advising Center will deliver advising services via online advising. 

The Science and Engineering Advising Center is ready to assist students virtually. Please know that our staff are working resolutely to provide you the best advising we can in these extraordinary circumstances. Please anticipate that there may be delays or technology issues during this unprecedented situation - but we will always do our best to advise our students!

COSE students can access advising services from the comfort & safety of their own home

Please utilize one of the following online advising forms for your advising needs.

Ask a COSE Advisor

  • Have a super quick question? Send us an email! You can use the “Ask a COSE Advisor” form instead of emailing directly. This form will allow us to gather necessary information at one time, like your student ID, major, etc.

Academic Probation Assessment and Future Plan

  • If you are currently on academic probation and have not met with an advisor (and have a probation registration hold), you can submit this form in lieu of a 1-hour probation advising appointment. Please note that advisors prefer to talk with you in real time via Zoom about probation - we want to work with you to create a plan to succeed!

Prerequisite Override Request Form

  • If you know the registration system will have trouble recognizing that you meet the prerequisites for a class, submit this form prior to registration. We’ll review your audit and enter an override, if necessary, which should allow you to register when registration opens (and the course has seats available).

We are actively reviewing these forms in the order they were received. We will reply to your Texas State email.

Scheduled advising appointments will be held via Zoom video appointments. 

  • Video meeting invites will be sent to your Texas State email 

  • Log into your Texas State email 5 minutes before your appointment and search for a meeting invite. This sometimes goes into the "Other" folder of your Bobcat Mail (i.e., not the "Focused" inbox).

If there are any technical difficulties with Zoom, we will call the number associated with your Texas State student record. If Zoom is not an option, call 512-245-1315 to arrange an alternative. 

We appreciate your patience as we adapt to this rapidly changing situation. We are working as hard as we can to address your academic questions and concerns.
