College of Basic and Applied Sciences Advising Center

  • As we approach the start of the Spring 2021 semester, please take some time to watch to this very important message from Dr. Fischer, Dean of the College of Basic and Applied Sciences.

  • To best protect the health and well-being of students, staff and the university community, students are strongly encouraged to make virtual advising appointments conducted by Zoom, telephone or email.

  • In the event that a student believes that an in-person appointment is needed, the student may request such an appointment.  All in-person appointments will be conducted adhering to social distancing requirements and other public health protocols.

Methods for scheduling advising appointments have not changed. Students who call 615-898-2495 to schedule appointments will be asked for their preferred appointment method and those who use the online scheduling system are asked to type this preference in the comments section.

Preparing for your appointment:

  • Know your advisor’s name, email, and direct office phone number.
  • Consistently check your MTSU email for updated instructions for your email, phone, Skype, or Zoom appointment.
  • Set up and/or check voicemail in the event you miss an advising appointment call.
  • Familiarize yourself with DegreeWorks, the degree-audit system available in your PipelineMT account.
  • Make a list of classes you think you need for the summer and/or fall terms.
  • Gather advising questions and any previous advising materials.
  • Be ready with computer access in the event we need to guide you using online resources.
  • Have paper and a pen or pencil available for notes.
