Am I in the Right Place?
If you are a current Linguistics major at UT Austin, probably so! Though we may refer you to another campus resource for additional assistance, we're always eager to assist you as you navigate the university. That being said, a few common concerns are handled primarily by other offices:
- Texas One Stop: financial aid, tuition and billing; transcripts and certifications
- Liberal Arts Career Services and Texas Career Engagement: major or career exploration, coaching for your job search, internship questions and guidance, etc.
- Liberal Arts Student Division: Dean's Office requests, including Q-drops, Withdrawals, and Pass/Fail transactions; Graduation Applications and related items.
To talk through your Q-drop, Withdrawal, and Pass/Fail options before visiting the Student Division, please make an appointment with us through the links in the next section.
- Current Linguistics Majors
Please feel free to e-mail email@example.com with any general inquiries. A good rule of thumb is to utilize e-mail for any quick questions that wouldn't require looking up your personal academic record. For anything else, please set up a meeting with Rebecca Marcus, Senior Academic Advisor, through the link below.
- Internal Transfer Students
For current UT students interested in changing to (or adding) a Linguistics major, please see our Linguistics Admissions page.
- Other Current Students
Other inquiries from current or former UT students may be directed to our virtual front desk or e-mail listed at the top of this page. Please note that our availability may be limited during high-traffic periods. If your inquiry involves ASL course enrollment or the minor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Admitted Linguistics Students
Welcome to the university! We look forward to working with you. Your first advising step is to sign up for orientation through New Student Services. As part of your orientation, you’ll meet one-on-one with an Academic Advisor. Because your registration time is tied to your orientation session, there is no registration advantage to meeting with an advisor prior to orientation. If you have a pressing question, though, please feel free to send it to email@example.com.
- Prospective UT Students
Thank you for your interest in studying Linguistics at The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to your admission, our Office of Admissions will be your primary contact. In addition to the Linguistics website, some of the links below may be particularly helpful to our future Longhorns. Good luck!
