Franklin College Advising Information

Advising is required for each student each semester.

If you do not have an advisor in SAGE or have any other questions, please email askfranklin@uga.edu.

How to find your advisor and make an appointment in SAGE

Lower-division advising: Lower-division advising involves choosing courses to complete the UGA core, as well as selecting the appropriate sequence of introductory classes for a student’s major. Lower-division advising is centralized in Franklin College’s Office of Academic Advising in 301 Brooks Hall. Franklin students in the Honors Program should visit Honors Program Advising for more information.

Departmental advising: As students progress into their major course work, they are advised in their academic department. Students should find their major in the table below for information on departmental advising.

  •  The point at which departments begin advising varies by major.
  •  Students with more than one major should be advised in each department.

Changing your major: If you have recently changed your major but have not been assigned a new advisor, please contact askfranklin@uga.edu. (Orientation students changing majors should contact Mary Herman mherman@uga.edu.
