Academic Advising

Richards College Academic Advising

Each semester, every student is required to meet with an academic advisor, prior to registration, to go over the courses he/she should take for the next semester to stay on track. When you meet with your advisor, you can expect to get specific and detailed information about your major, information about UWG policies, the Core Curriculum, programs available at UWG, and career possibilities. Your advisor will assist you in planning the next semester’s program of study and help you stay on track to finish your degree in a satisfactory amount of time. Your advisor is also able to assist you in University regulations regarding grades, grade point averages, the Regent’s Test, etc. You can expect the highest level of confidentiality from your advisor. Any personal questions or concerns will remain private.

When preparing for the advising process, it is best to make an appointment with your advisor. Before your appointment, you need to look at Banweb to come up with a tentative course schedule. You need to bring your tentative schedule, a pen, and any questions you may have to your appointment.
