COVID-19 Update Regarding RRC Advising Center Operations

If you have not already done so, please read President Trauth’s statement

You may also visit the Latest COVID-19 Update & Resources Webpage for updates. 

To support the University’s social distancing measures resulting from the COVID-19, all undergraduate non-health professions advising appointments between March 19 and April 10 will be conducted via the following delivery systems:

  • Zoom,
  • Telephone,
  • or email instead of in-person appointments. 

This timeline may be updated as the University adjusts to the evolving conditions.  If you want to ask a question that doesn't require a full length advising appointment, you may email your advisor.  Please allow us extra time for an answer as we will be receiving numerous emails.

If you prefer a Zoom appointment, please take the following steps:

  • Zoom video meeting invite will be sent to your Texas State email from your advisor.
  • Log into your Texas State email a few minutes before your appointment to ensure you are connected and wait for your advisor to connect with you shortly.
  • If you have trouble connecting to Zoom, your advisor will call the number associated with your student record or email you to conduct the appointment.

If you already have a face-to-face appointment scheduled on March 19 or after, you are welcome to call our office at 512.716.4001 or we will reach out to you individually to discuss your options for converting your appointment to a distance format.

Registration will begin on March 30. Our goal is to provide the same level of service but through a distance delivery method to safeguard everyone’s health.

Thank you for your patience as we adjust to the still evolving situation,

RRC Undergraduate Advising Team.
