New Students

If you recently changed to a major in the Mary Frances Early College of Education, you will receive your new advisor assignment in SAGE within two business days. If you are new to UGA, you will be advised and cleared to register at Orientation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Director of Undergraduate Advising.

Current Students

At UGA, academic advising is a mandatory and essential part of the undergraduate educational experience. Our academic advisors will help you understand options within programs of study, review degree requirements and course selection, as well as connect you to resources for academic and personal success. We expect you to be both prepared for and engaged in the advising experience throughout your time in the College.

Advising policies and procedures are subject to change, and although we can provide advice, you are ultimately responsible for knowing and understanding degree requirements and policies related to your academic progress. Advisors cannot provide a guarantee of graduation and/or certification within a specified period.

Office Hours

Advisors are available by email and virtually (Zoom, Microsoft Teams chat) for questions. Please check with your advisor for their Drop-In hours and how to contact them. Drop-In hours are for quick questions only and will be limited to 15 minutes per person. These times do not replace your required advising appointment and you cannot be cleared for registration during Drop In. Students will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
