How to Schedule an Appointment

Before scheduling an appointment:

  • You MUST be currently registered at UT Austin for the semester in which you will be advised (check eligibility dates)
  • Make sure your issue is NOT on our list of Excluded Services

If you qualify for an appointment, please:

  • Complete an intake form, either in person at the LSS office or online. After doing so, you may schedule an appointment.

Note: You may schedule appointments up to 1 week in advance.

If you have already scheduled an appointment:

  • Be sure to bring all pertinent documents with you to the appointment
  • Arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your appointment to sign in
  • Be sure to bring your student ID

If you CANNOT make your appointment OR will be more than 5 minutes late:

  • At least one hour prior to your scheduled appointment, please telephone 512-471-7796 to cancel and/or reschedule. Failure to do so may mean you will be ineligible to use our services until the next fiscal year.
