School of Education Advising Frequently Asked Questions
I tried to register but I have an advisement hold. What is it and why do I have one?
The advising hold ensures students have access to the resources and information necessary to successfully complete their goals. Advising holds are removed by meeting with your academic advisor each semester.
Do I have to meet with an advisor?
The School of Education at UTC recognizes the importance of providing students access to the resources and information necessary for successful completion of their goals. In alignment with University policy, all SOE students are required to meet with an academic advisor once a semester. During this meeting, students are able to ask questions, create/update course plans, resolve academic/personal issues, discuss post-graduation plans and much more. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors early in the semester.

How do I register?
The UTC Registrar created a great how to guide for registration.
I tried to register for a course(s), but I’m getting an error. What do I do?
Some courses at UTC have certain requirements or restrictions which impact student’s eligibility to enroll in those courses. Some of these may include courses being closed, requiring a pre or co requisite (course that must be taken before or at the same time), requiring admission to a certain program, etc. If you have been advised to enroll in one of these courses and you are facing a registration error, you will need to request an override.
Reminder: overrides are provided by the department in which the class is being offered
Where can I find specific information about a class?
Course descriptions can be found either by clicking on the course title on the online course schedule on MyMocsNet or by reviewing the Academic Catalog. These course descriptions will not only describe the course but also include all co-requisite or pre-requisite information.
How do I change my major?
Changing or declaring a major or minor is done by completing an online form (Program Change request) via the Registrar. We recommend talking to your advisor before requesting any program changes. Remember, your advisor is here to help you successfully complete your educational goals!
