Cancelling or rescheduling an appointment: Please contact your advisor or the advising department (706-542-1412 option #1) at least 24 hours before your scheduled time.

Missing your appointment: If you do not keep your scheduled advising appointment, or if you cancel past 9am on the day of the appointment, you are considered a “no-show” for the appointment and will not be able to reschedule until you contact your advisor directly (preferably through email). At that point, your advisor will explain their individual no-show policy and tell you how and when you are able to be advised. Please be aware that when you miss your advising appointment, you risk having to sign up for classes later than your designated registration time, and you deny fellow students the opportunity to be advised promptly.

If your advisor cancels your appointment:  You will receive an e-mail from the staff of Franklin College Office of Academic Advising the morning of the cancellation with instructions on how to re-schedule your appointment. For any further information on cancelled appointments please e-mail your advisor.

Tips on Making your Appointment

When making your advising appointment for next semester:

  • Take special care to schedule an appointment that you will remember and have no difficulty keeping.
  • Plan to arrive about 10 minutes before your scheduled time. Remember buses may run slowly, and parking is rarely available.
  • Never make an appointment during a class or immediately before or after a class.
