Franklin College Advising Information

Advising is required for each student each semester.

Lower-division advising: Lower-division advising involves choosing courses to complete the UGA core, as well as selecting the appropriate sequence of introductory classes for a student’s major. Lower-division advising is centralized in Franklin College’s Office of Academic Advising, located on the first floor of Memorial Hall, with satellite advising offices in select high-rise residence halls.

Departmental advising: As students progress into their major course work, they are advised in their academic department. Students should find their major below for information on scheduling appointments.

  • The point at which departments begin advising varies by major.
  • Students with more than one major should be advised in each department.
     

Changing your major: If you have recently changed your major but have not been assigned a new advisor, please contact Pamela Ollie-Waller at 706-542-1522 or pollie@uga.edu

Graduation Advising: The Graduation Certification Office informs and advises students regarding progress towards graduation. Graduation advisors work with students and relevant departments to maintain the accuracy of academic records and certify students for graduation in the appropriate term. Students may make appointments using SARA or by calling 706-542-1522.

Walk-in advising is available for general questions: current walk-in advising schedule
