Advising Appointments

UGA students are required to meet with an academic advisor every semester. Students are cleared to register for classes the following semester only after meeting with an advisor.

Students are encouraged to schedule their advising appointments early, since appointments tend to fill up later in the semester. College of Education undergraduate students should contact their advisor for access to an appointment calendar. Advisor contact information can be found below.

Advising appointments are approximately 30 minutes, so come prepared to discuss your plans for the following semester. During your appointment, your advisor will review your progress and discuss course options with you. If your intended major is high-demand, your advisor can review the application requirements. Advisors can also direct you to additional resources on campus as needed. At the end of your appointment, you will have access to an academic plan in DegreeWorks, and your academic advising hold will be removed.

Please email the Office of Student Services or your assigned advisor with any problems or questions about making an appointment.

New to the College of Education?

If you are new to the College of Education or have questions about your advising appointment, please email the Office of Student Services to be assigned an advisor. When adding your major in Athena, please select the "Intended" option unless you have applied and/or been prompted by your advisor to declare the major program. Students that are not yet accepted to a program within the College of Education are classified as intended students.

Walk-In Hours

Most advisors are available without an appointment on Wednesdays from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. and from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Please note: These appointments are intended to address brief questions but do not replace required academic advisement appointments. Please sign-up for your required academic advisement by contacting your advisor.
