During the University of Georgia (UGA)’s response to COVID-19, the Office of Academic Advising Services will continue to support students’ academic success. As always, advisors are committed to ALL students’ success at UGA, so please let us know what we can do to help.
Academic advisors will be offering alternative advising options for you during the period of time that the UGA campus is impacted. Please see below for information on how to communicate with your academic advisor depending on your circumstance.
For current information on UGA’s Pandemic Response Plan, make sure to check your UGA email often and visit uga.edu/coronavirus.
Meeting with your Advisor
As the fall 2020 semester begins, you will need to be advised and cleared in order to register for spring 2021 classes. You will, however, meet with your advisor remotely rather than in-person, unless specific accommodations are requested.
Your advisor will email with instructions and information about being advised remotely. It could be via Zoom, email, or some other method that is convenient for both of you.
In order to comply with FERPA student privacy regulations, email your advisor through UGA email and write: “I approve to have an advising appointment remotely with (advisor’s name) via the following method (Skype, Zoom, email, etc.)."
For Zoom and Skype appointments hold up your UGA student ID card to the camera at the beginning of appointment to confirm your identity.
Remember that during this time, it may take longer than usual for your advisor to respond. Please wait 2 business days before emailing or phoning again, unless you have an emergency.
For more information about student academic support, visit Division of Academic Enhancement At a Distance.
When in doubt, don’t hesitate to contact your advisor with any questions related to your academic progress.
