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. For new first-year students, it typically takes 4 years to complete these programs.
New and current UNC Greensboro students 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 UNC Greensboro campus.
