Assignment of Advisors
The Center for Student Success
Advising at Georgia College is a shared responsibility between students, faculty and staff. Through a network of resources and support, students communicate with advisors to obtain information and guidance aimed at the student’s successful completion of degree requirements and preparation for post baccalaureate opportunities. An inherent goal of the advising process is for students to gain self-understanding that will inform their decisions regarding academic, career and life goals.
The Center for Student Success is committed to the smooth transition and the academic success of all undergraduate students at Georgia College. Students are able to experience centralized advising in Lanier Hall, located in the middle of the Academic Square. With professional advisors located in one building and representing every major, students can receive guidance in a one-stop setting. The average student changes majors three or four times before finalizing his/her decision. For this reason, a centralized advising experience enables students to make the most of their time while talking to the appropriate qualified professionals. Our professional advisors also teach or support many of the freshman “First Year Academic Seminars” which increases the amount of contact between advisor and student.
