The Move Forward Program
The Undergraduate Office is committed to assisting all Electrical and Computer Engineering students reach their fullest potential as academic scholars at The University of Texas at Austin. While we recognize that many of our students are successful in designing a fabric of resources and supportive systems such as professors, advisors and fellow classmates, there are some who can truly benefit from additional assistance in excelling in our program.
As an early intervention initiative, The Move Forward Program is designed to connect academically 'at-risk' ECE undergraduate students to resources available through our Department, the Cockrell School of Engineering and The University of Texas at Austin before they reach the point of an academic crisis.
The Move Forward Program is designed to provide individualized academic advising support to ECE students who are motivated to improve their academic performance. At the end of the Fall and Spring semester, the advising office will send a Secured Academic Note (SAN) invitation to those students that earned a previous semester GPA at or below a 2.5. Our goal is to assist students before they are at-risk of not earning the minimum 2.5 Basic Sequence GPA and/or the minimum UT, EE, and/or Technical GPA of at least a 2.0. Invited students are not required to participate in The Move Forward Program however previous participants have recognized the benefits of collaborating with both an academic advisor and campus resources such as professors, TA's and tutors to improve their academic performance at UT.
