Office of Student Services and Advising

Advising

What is School of Education Advising?

The Office of Student Services and Advising uses a developmental advising model by which students learn how to review and understand their degree and state licensure requirements. Students are informed of academic and personal support services on campus (and in the community) that may help in their success at the university.

In compliance with university policy, all students are expected to meet with their advisor at least once a semester for advising and registration. It is during that required appointment, students will be issued their advising code for registration. However, the office encourages students to also have regular check-ins with their assigned advisors to discuss how the semester is progressing. These check-ins may be conducted in person, or by Skype/Google Chat during regular walk-in hours.

Prospective Students

Students Transfers into UNCG

For transfer students, advising and registration is by appointment prior to SOAR. During the advising appointment, advisors will discuss program and licensure requirements, review transfer credits accepted by UNCG, and select courses for your first semester at UNCG.

Students Transfers within UNCG

Transfer students within UNCG are encouraged to complete the change of major form prior to the campus advising and registration period. This allows the office to evaluate your change request, and if approved, assign you to an advisor in advance of peak advising and registration. During your advising appointment, advisors will review program and licensure requirements while making you aware of student support services in the School of Education and UNCG campus.

Current Students in the School of Education

For your first advising appointment, students are expected to review their degree evaluation in UNCGenie, have a proposed schedule in mind, as well as any questions for your advisor. Your advisor will take this information and access your knowledge of your program requirements before beginning the advising process.
