Departmental advising is a required process for students in the Hospitality and Meeting & Event Planning programs. Department staff will strategically approve you for classes based on your progression and status in the program. A face to face appointment is mandatory for first time students.

The advising process is a critical step in ensuring enough seats are available to students within our programs; therefore, the majority of courses are locked. With the exception of introductory courses, a granted petition is needed to register for locked classes and can only be given through an advising session.
For additional advising information contact the Departments of Hospitality and Meeting & Event Planning at 512-223-5274 or email: [email protected].

Step 1: Review Current Course Offerings

On the advising form, you will indicate the course(s) in which you would like to enroll. Review our current course offerings on the Course Schedule.

Step 2: Program Review and Course Selection

Use your Self-Service portal to access Student Planning and My Progress (within student planning).  This will allow you to track your progress and see which classes you have left to complete.  (see Step 3).  To assist you in planning, please check out our Course Offering Chart as all of our classes are not offered each semester.  Please note they are subject to change.

Step 3: Complete Current Student Granted Petition

Complete the Hospitality Advising Form. This form is to be used ONLY by students who have had previous face-to-face advising at least once.
Current Student Advising Form

Once the advising form is submitted, it will be reviewed by a departmental advisor. Courses will be unlocked and you will receive a confirmation email. If there are any concerns about you course selection we will contact you via email. Please be mindful of when you submit the form and allow time for processing. Please do not submit an advising form multiple times with the same courses requested.
