Academic Area Meeting
213 Miller Learning Center
At the academic area meeting, we will introduce you to the college, our majors, and opportunities. You will also schedule your advising appointment for Day 2.
Advising & Registration
Appointment times vary
Students will receive an email on the morning of Day 2 with a scheduled advising appointment time. We prefer you arrive no more than 10-15 minutes prior to your individual appointment time. This may be before or after lunch.
At your individual appointment, you will have the opportunity to talk in-depth with an academic advisor about your major, degree requirements, placement test results, and credit from testing, if applicable. Together, you will draft a list of classes, and alternatives, for your first semester. The Academic Advisement Hold on your account will be cleared at this time.
Immediately following your appointment, you will register for classes right here in Dawson Hall with the assistance of current FACS students and staff. No need to return to the MLC!
Please note advising and registration is for students only. During this time, guests are invited to walk around and enjoy our self-guided tour or hop on our free Wi-Fi and wait in the Student Success and Advising Center, 112 Dawson Hall. Advising and registration usually takes 60-90 minutes.
Academic advising is a central component of our mission as a center and an integral part of your experience at UGA and within the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. Due to this central focus, feedback about your advising experience is important to us to meet the needs of current and future students. At the conclusion of your orientation session with the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, please click here to tell us about your advising and registration experience. It will take approximately eight minutes to complete. Your responses will remain confidential. If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Student Success and Advising Center at email@example.com.
