I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful fall season in Athens and here on campus. As we move on to week five, the College of Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Student Affairs staff would like to remind you to take advantage of our Walk-In Advising hours by stopping in at the Office of Student Affairs in Wilson Hall on the College Green.

Walk-in Advising Hours

  • Meet the A&S Advising Staff. No appointment needed during walk-in hours.
  • Wednesdays from 9 to 11 a.m. & 1 to 4 p.m.
  • Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m.
  • A&S Undergraduate Student Affairs is located at Wilson Hall 104, College Green.

If you are a Senior and planning to complete your degree this spring, you should meet with an adviser to review your Degree Audit Report (DARS) and confirm that your plans for graduation are as you anticipate. It is your responsibility to see that all requirements are met for graduation. A graduation check will allow you to double-check that you are on track and meeting all university, college and major requirements and avoid surprises.

If you are a Junior and planning to complete your degree next spring, now is the time to schedule your first graduation check. By meeting with an academic adviser your junior year, you can confirm that you are on track for a timely graduation. A grad check your junior year is another opportunity to be pro-active in your academic planning.  An academic adviser can help recognize minors and/or certificates that you might be close to completing.  This gives you time to strategically plan your final year for the most impactful and fulfilling undergraduate experience.

Finally, the last day to update your academic plan with the Registrar is Friday, Nov. 11, 2019. You can stop in anytime, including walk-in hours, to complete a Program Update Form and declare a major in the College of Arts & Sciences.
