Find Academic Support, All Four Years

Our program has dedicated academic advisors, and we pair all students with peer and alumni mentors to help you make the most of your time at McCombs.

Meet Your Canfield BHP Advisors

Our advisors are fluent in university and Canfield BHP resources. In an appointment with an advisor, you'll discuss more than just academic classes: the Canfield BHP advisors want to know you and your goals, struggles, and strengths. Our advisors take an individualized approach to each student's academic plan. They offer scholastic guidance, and they can answer any questions you may have about UT and the Canfield BHP.

Peer Mentors
  • Navigate Freshman Year with Ease

    We match every Canfield BHP freshman with a Canfield BHP upperclassman to serve as their mentor. Peer Mentors are there to help new students settle into Canfield BHP and UT. They help connect new students to upperclassmen and campus resources. Every Canfield BHP freshman will have ongoing interaction with their peer mentor during the first semester.
