Application Details

When the student enters the reception area of the UPO, they provide their UT ID for the peer advisor to enter the student’s ID via the card swipe interface. If the student does not have their ID card with them, or the ID is unable to provide a reliable swipe, the student’s EID is entered into the system. The peer advisor then determines the type of appointment the student has, and the advisor they are scheduled to see. After all necessary information has been entered into the system, the student waits in the reception area until called by the advisor they are scheduled to meet. The student’s name is removed from the wait list once s/he has been called by the academic advisor.


All individuals identified by the UPO Director of Advising with a need to use this system will received input access. Student workers do not receive access to the admin portion of the system.

Business Cycle

The Customer Service Console is available throughout the academic year, with peak use during heavy advising periods.
