Orientation Advising Information
In addition to the general Texas State University orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor to discuss your specific degree plan.
- If you have fewer than 15 hours of college credit (or less than 30 hours of complete/pending college credit), please contact the PACE Advising Center for orientation advising.
- If you have 15+ hours of college credit (or 30+ hours of complete/pending college credit), you will be able to meet with an advisor from the College of Science and Engineering (COSE) Academic Advising Center.
To meet with a COSE Advisor, please follow the instructions below:
- Students and advisors will meet via Zoom. Please call 512-245-1315 to schedule your Zoom appointment.
- Prior to your appointment, compile a list of any incoming college credit you may have. Possible college credit you need to report to your academic advisor:
- Advanced Placement (AP)
- Dual Credit
- International Baccalaureate (IB)
- College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
- Planned summer 2020 coursework
- Ensure you have activated your Texas State NetID prior to your appointment, as Zoom settings require that you join the meeting with a Texas State account. To activate, visit your Online Toolkit. Then, follow the instructions on the IT Assistance Center site.
- About 5 minutes before your appointment is set to begin, you will receive an email link to the Zoom meeting. The message will be sent to your Texas State email.
If technology or other issues affect your ability to participate in a Zoom appointment, please contact our office at 512-245-1315 to arrange other accommodations.
The Texas State University Undergraduate Catalog contains a wealth of information, including general requirements, policies, majors, minors, and course descriptions.
COSE Advising publishes flowcharts of degrees within the College of Science and Engineering. Flowcharts provide a visual representation of the courses within a degree, as well as the order that courses must be taken.
Flowcharts can be viewed here.
Visit our HB 2504 website, which contains the syllabi for our courses. Course syllabi typically will explain course goals, topics covered, assignments, and grading rubrics.
