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.
- Students use SARA to schedule appointments.
- Please review our policies for missing, arriving late, or rescheduling advising appointments.
- Franklin students in the Honors Program should visit Honors Program Advising for more information.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
