What Does an Advisor Do?

The Advising Center supports students in their path to graduation via delivering information about advising and registration, providing appropriate course recommendations to keep students on track, and teaching students to use the tools for self-advisement that the University of West Georgia offers. Additionally, the Advising Center's goal is to shorten the time to degree in accordance with UWG's Complete College Georgia Strategy 14 by actively monitoring the degree progress of its students and intervening for students who are off track for graduation in four to six years.
