Meet ADVi

A New Virtual Tool To Support College Advising

ADVi (short for “adviser”) is a chatbot, created by the THECB and The University of Texas at Austin, that is available 24/7 to answer college advising questions. When students chat with ADVi, they can get answers to questions about applying to college, financial aid, the FAFSA and TASFA, scholarships, and much more. During this unprecedented time, we’re working to make ADVi an even stronger tool for counselors who are supporting students remotely. We’ll be sending a more detailed update about ADVi soon – be on the lookout! In the meantime, check out www.askADVi.org to learn more.
