Ask ADVi


Meet ADVi, a new tool to help get your college questions answered!


ADVi is a chatbot, powered by artificial intelligence, who is available 24/7. ADVi doesn’t know everything, but they have a lot of information about applying to college, completing the FAFSA (or TASFA), college readiness, and more!


You can ask ADVi all questions related to attending a public college or university in the state of Texas, including things like how financial aid works, what tests you need to take, how to transfer credits, and how to access campus resources. ADVi provides general information but can also connect you with advisers at specific colleges if you have a college or university in mind.


ADVi is accessible by text message and online chat 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Near-peer advisers provide support when a question cannot be answered by ADVi. ADVi was created by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and The University of Texas at Austin, and is FREE for you to use.*
