Academic advising is a critical component of the educational experience. In line with the philosophy of the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA), the academic advisement program empowers students to take charge of their educational careers through a collaborative relationship between advisor and student. Toward this end, students learn to develop and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values and career goals.
The mission of the Advising Center is to support 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 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 (available on the Student Affairs & Enrollment Management website) by actively monitoring the degree progress of its students and intervening for students who are off track for graduating in four to six years.
