Academic advising is a critical component of the educational experience. Below are advising options depending on how many credit hours you have and the track you are pursuing:

  • 30 credit hours or less

    You must meet with representatives from BOTH the Advising Center and from the Chemistry department. The Advising Center will advise on available student resources, next steps for your degree track, how to register through BANWEB, and how to check your progress towards your degree (WolfWatch). The Chemistry department advises on possible careers with a degree in Chemistry, recommended degree tracks, overall degree requirements, and where to find more specific information on degree/career tracks.

    1. Schedule an appointment with Megan Groninger (mgroning@westga.edu) in the Advising Center (UCC).
    2. Schedule an appointment with Megan Mayercik (mmayercik@westga.edu) in the Chemistry Department (TLC 2131).
  • 30-60 credit hours

    Once you reach 30 credit hours, an advisor will be assigned based on your degree track and your progress towards the degree. At this point, you will be encouraged to starting thinking about career choices and life after graduation. If you need help finding your advisor you can check WolfWatch or SSC Campus, or you can contact Megan Mayercik (mmayercik@westga.edu). In general, the advisors are:

  • 60 credit hours or more

    Once you reach 60 credit hours your advisor will be assigned based on your degree track and your overall career goals. In general, the advisors are:

    • UTEACH: Dr. Gaquere (agaquere@westga.edu
    • Pre-Professional: Dr. Geisler (vgeisler@westga.edu). 
    • Chemistry/Chemical Engineering Dual Degree: Dr. Dutt(sbdutt@westga.edu
    • Everyone else will be divided between the remaining faculty members based on degree track and overall career goals.
