Advising

Note: In the event of a discrepancy between the Middle Georgia State University Catalog and any departmental materials (including Advising Worksheets), the Middle Georgia State University Catalog prevails.

All students must meet with their professional or faculty advisor at least once every year to assist with course selection and academic planning. Many academic programs require specific sequencing in order to reach degree completion in a timely manner. Also, students frequently benefit from guidance in exploring potential majors and coordinating career goals with education opportunities or study aboard programs.

In the School of Arts and Letters, students with under 60 credit hours should contact one of the Professional Advisors listed below. The Professional Advisors can assist students in all majors within the School of Arts and Letters (SOAL).
