  • Clarify the student's personal values and goals.
  • Identify services at UT that can help the student meet his or her needs and goals.
  • Choose an educational program consistent with the student's abilities and interests.
  • Understand information about educational options, degree requirements, policies and procedures.
  • Monitor the student's progress toward degree completion.
