**COVID-19 Special Announcement - Academic advisors are offering alternative advising options during the period of time that the UGA campus is impacted. Visit Advising at a Distance for more information.
If you are a UGA student taking one or more online courses, meet with your academic advisor in your school or college every semester. Be sure to schedule your appointment as early as possible. You can see the available appointments for your advisor in SAGE.
Advisors play a key role in the academic life of online students. Once admitted, students are assigned an advisor. The process for advising is tailored per program to provide the best experience for you. Advisors provide information and advice to help you identify the best sequence of courses, policy and procedures, and provide guidance throughout your experience.
In graduate programs with a thesis requirement, the graduate advisor also guides your research from beginning to degree completion. This includes detailed conversations about research interests, professional goals and aspirations and establishment of a graduate committee.
