Need Advisement?  Read this first!

  • Advisement is conducted on the basis of current UWG coursework (via Wolf Watch) and/or a completed official transfer evaluation done by UWG's Registrar. Please be advised that an official evaluation can take several weeks after you are admitted to UWG and registered for UWG Orientation.
  • Current UWG students must have an appointment in order to meet with an advisor, with the exception of the first week of each semester, in which walk-in advising is provided to students enrolling for that semester.
  • High school students interested in nursing at UWG and wishing to speak with a nursing advisor should first arrange to participate in a daily campus visit through Undergraduate Admissions or attend a UWG Preview Day by making a reservation through Undergraduate Admissions.
  • Prospective Transfer students can speak with an advisor to ask general questions about the core curriculum or admission requirements by participating in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions "Transfer Tuesday."  Please schedule your "Transfer Tuesday" by clicking the following link: Undergraduate Admissions. If you have general questions about nursing at UWG, please email

Current/Returning UWG Students

Appointments are available to Currently Enrolled UWG students, at our main campus in Carrollton, GA (even if the student is enrolled at another campus). Appointments can be scheduled via SSC Campus, located in your MyUWG account under SSO External Resources.
