Advising & Counseling

Academic Advising

Academic Advising is the process in which you and the KEY Center advisor work together to set goals for your academic life.  Advising appointments are not simply a time to schedule classes for a future semester but should be a safe place where you can share your thoughts, aspirations, concerns, and interests.  It is a collaborative process, but ultimately, you – the student – are responsible for your educational experience.

KEY Center Academic Advising Procedures

   Schedule at least one academic advising appointment per semester with the KEY Center advisor. It is preferable to meet multiple times during a semester to discuss your progress towards your goals and any challenges you may be facing during the semester.

   Bring your KEY Center Folder to all advising appointments.

   Please be on time for your scheduled appointment.

   If you know you will not be able to keep an appointment, please call the office as soon as possible to reschedule.

   Please turn off your cell phone during your meeting.

   Come to appointments prepared with questions and/or topics to discuss.

   Accept responsibility for your decisions and actions.

Advising appointments can be scheduled by calling (361) 582-2414, emailing Joy Sixtos (, or visiting the KEY Center during office hours.
