Academic Area Meeting
At the academic area meeting, we will provide a brief introduction to the college, our majors, and opportunities.
Advising & Registration
We will meet together in a computer lab, so you can register with the assistance of your academic advisor and current FACS students. Other FACS staff will be available to help troubleshoot any registration issues. The Academic Advisement Hold on your account will be cleared at this time.
You will have the opportunity to talk in-depth with an advisor about your major, degree requirements, and transfer credits. Together, you will draft a list of classes, and alternatives, for your first semester, then you will immediately begin registering for classes. No need to return to the MLC!
When you are done, you are free to go to lunch, get your UGA ID card, go on a tour, or take care of any other unfinished business.
Guests are welcome to attend academic area meetings. However, advising and registration sessions are for students only. At that time, guests are invited to walk around and enjoy our self-guided tour or hop on our free Wi-Fi and wait outside the Student Success and Advising Center, 112 Dawson Hall. Advising and registration usually takes about an hour.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
