UT Martin provides academic advisement to all regularly enrolled students. See the section on the Student Academic Support for the special services they offer.
The objectives of the university advisement program are:
The vice chancellor for academic affairs is responsible for the academic advisement program which is based upon a system of policies, procedures, publications, personnel and services that are adopted on a university wide basis. The deans of the individual colleges are accountable to the vice chancellor for academic affairs for the effectiveness of the advisement programs within each college. Deans of each college are responsible for implementing the academic advising system which is determined as being most effective in meeting the advising needs of the students within each college. Academic deans are responsible for the maintenance of advising files for all students enrolled in each college and for ensuring that advisors have accurate information for each new advisee assigned. Advising records available to all advisors should include the following: ACT and/or SAT student profile reports, campus placement scores, TOEFL scores (if appropriate), admission confirmation and transfer evaluation forms, academic planning worksheet, academic progress information, record of referrals to other student services and academic advising agreement. Academic deans see that files are promptly forwarded to the appropriate office or advisor when students change colleges, majors or advisors.
In support of the academic advising program, the university shall:
Students may enroll during the fall and spring semesters for a maximum of 20 credit hours with their advisor's approval (8 hours during each summer term). The dean's approval must be obtained in order to register for a larger number of credit hours.
Probationary students may not register for more than 16 credit hours per semester or eight credit hours per summer term without the written approval of the appropriate college dean.
