The appointed academic advisor is the key source of information about the college. All entering students are assigned an academic advisor depending on their declared majors at Georgia Tech. To find the assigned advisor, visit the advising Web page. Students will meet their assigned advisors at orientation and at regular intervals during their college careers. Advisors welcome questions about different programs and areas.
Academic advisors are the guides through the college experience. They will help to identify the correct major, curriculum, minor, certificates, study abroad, internships, campus resources, and much more.
While the degree requirements are posted on the Registrar's Office web page, it is essential to check in with the assigned advisor at least once a year (if not more) to ensure that requirements are being met and communication lines are open. Also, regular contact with the advisor will enhance each student's college experience and help them reach their future goals.
