(Board of Regents Resolution No. 19-14)
Academic advisement is mandatory for all full- or part-time students, transfer students, and high school advanced placement students. The signature of a designated advisor is required to complete the registration process.
The following are the five categories of undergraduate students and who their designated advisors are:
|If you are:||Your advisor is:|
|Undeclared with less than 30 credits||EMSS counselors or college advisors if you are undeclared in a college.|
|Declared with less than 60 credits||College advisors for the major you have declared or program you are in.|
|Undeclared and a transfer student||EMSS counselors|
|Declared and a transfer student||College advisors if declared or undeclared in a college.|
|Declared and not covered by any of the above||Academic major faculty advisors in the college/school, as assigned by the dean.|
As a requirement for graduation, academic evaluation must be requested from the Records Office once 60 credits or approximately half of the required credits for graduation have been completed. (See Degrees: Requirements and Regulations). Unofficial Evaluations of a student’s program are available anytime through WebAdvisor. Should the students or their advisors discover that their records are incomplete, the registrar will assist the advisor in bringing the academic records up-to-date.
A student must declare a major by the beginning of the sophomore year (30 credits).
Students who transfer to UOG with more than 30 credits must declare a major by the
beginning of their second semester at UOG.
