Meet the Undergraduate Advisors 

ATEC Undergraduate Advisors guide current UTD students through the degree requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication. Advisors help students understand the different ATEC pathways and courses within the degree in relation to their aspirations. To ensure that each student has a tailored experience, each student is assigned to an advisor based on their last name. This allows each advisor to cultivate a lasting relationship with their advisees and provide information that is relevant to the student's experience. ATEC academic advising is a collaborative process and requires active participation by both the student and the advisor. Ultimately, the student is responsbile for their own educational experience.

Meet the Advising Peer Mentors

Advising Peer Mentors are current ATEC students who have been trained to assist current and prospective students in navigating the ATEC concentrations. As Advising Peer Mentors, they assist with schedule planning and registration, demonstrate advising technology, discuss the program with prospective students, and develop and implement programming for their peers. Additionally, they oversee our front desk, answering the phone and email, checking in students for appointments, and assisting with paperwork.

*While our office is remote, you can get in contact with ATEC Peer Mentors by emailing ATECadvising@utdallas.edu or by posting on the AskATEC Team.

Current ATEC Students

Students currently enrolled as an ATEC major may meet with their assigned advisor to discuss their graduation requirements, degree plan, future planning of courses, and any other academic or non-academic questions or concerns that they have. Students who need assistance building their schedule for the upcoming semester are encouraged to meet with an Advising Peer Mentor or email ATECadvising at utdallas.edu.

Changing Your Major to ATEC

Students who would like to change their major to ATEC must meet with the advisor assigned to their alphabet. During that meeting, your advisor will discuss how your completed courses will fit in the ATEC major and how to apply to the different concentrations within ATEC. All new ATEC students are placed on the ATEC General concentration. If you are interested in a different concentration, be sure to discuss this in your change of major meeting. You can review concentration eligibility here. Once you meet with an advisor, you may submit a request to officially change your major to ATEC with the ATEC General subplan through Orion.

Prospective Students – Visiting ATEC and UTD

Prospective students are encouraged to register to attend an About ATEC session for information about the ATEC major specifically. Check out our "Visit ATEC" page for more details and additional prospective student opportunities offered by UTD.

If you're unable to sign up to attend About ATEC, you may alternatively schedule an appointment to meet with one of our Advising Peer Mentors. During this appointment, questions about the ATEC major, pathways, ATEC-specific scholarships, and ATEC academic questions will be discussed. The Advising Peer Mentor will also provide a tour of the ATC Building, if desired. *While our office is operating remotely, one-on-one appointments with ATEC Peer Mentors are not available, but you may still contact them by emailing ATECadvising@utdallas.edu.

While on campus, we recommend that you also:
