Academic Advising

Academic advising is an important component of your academic experience at the University of Georgia. You must meet with an academic advisor every semester before registering for classes.

Students should be full participants in the academic advising process. Although your academic advisor provides advice and guidance, each student is responsible for knowing and understanding the policies and degree requirements for their chosen major.

Find your advisor’s name in the contact list below, and then follow the instructions for scheduling an advising appointment. For other questions, please email success@uga.edu or contact the FACS Academic Advising Coordinator.

New FACS Students

  • If you recently changed your major in Athena please check your SAGE Success Network for your “FACS Primary Advisor”
  • Students newly admitted to UGA will be advised and cleared for course registration as part of New Student Orientation
  • For other questions, please email success@uga.edu

Prepare for Your Advising Appointment
