Advisement in the Academic Advisement Center (AAC)
Students who choose an academic major are assigned to an advisor in the academic department of the major. Open-option students – i.e., those who have not chosen a major are advised in the university's Academic Advisement Center. Dual-Enrollment students are also advised in the Academic Advisement Center.
Prior to the academic advising period (March & October for pre-registration), students should schedule an appointment with their academic advisor through their academic department (or Advisement Center if Open-option). All students assigned to the Academic Advisement Center will be contacted via their North Georgia email account when it is time to make appointments for pre-registration advisement.
Each student is encouraged to communicate with their advisor concerning contemplated schedule, educational, or career plan changes or to discuss academic problems and concerns. Although advisors provide guidance and assistance to students, it is ultimately the responsibility of each student to be familiar with the requirements of her/his program of study and the undergraduate bulletin.
