Academic Advising

In our supportive and close-knit community, the academic advisors play an active role in the development of the students’ academic progress.  Advisors provide guidance for students concerning educational activities and trajectories. They help students understand the details of AOMA’s program and how best to navigate it. They offer advice regarding course registration and degree plans, they help students access the CAMS student portal system, and they connect students to resources within the greater Austin community. Working closely with faculty members, advisors also identify at-risk learners and help to plan steps for their remediation.

To schedule an appointment with an academic advisor, please contact them directly or schedule through the clinic reception staff. Advisors are not assigned, so each student may work with the advisor or advisors of their choice over the course of their program at AOMA.
