During Gerogia State’s response to COVID-19, the Office of Undergraduate Academic Assistance will continue to support students’ academic success. As always, RCB advisors are committed to ALL students’ success at Georgia State Univeristy, so please let us know what we can do to help.
Academic advisors will be offering alternative advising options for you during the period of time that the Georgia State campus is impacted.
Meeting with your Advisor
If you have an appointment scheduled during the next two weeks, KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENT and check your Georgia State email address for instructions from your advisor on how you will be advised remotely, as no appointments will be conducted face to face during this time.
If you do not have an appointment already scheduled, download the Navigate app and schedule an appointment at your convenience or email your senior advisor directly to set up a time. The senior advisors are:
Tracy Mitchell A-B, (email@example.com)
Kim Bagneris C-G & J, (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Carmen Owens H, I, K, L, (email@example.com)
Vanessa Jones M-R, (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Marchey Brown S-Z, (email@example.com)
If you have any questions or issues, do not hesitate to email your advisor directly. Regular office hours are 8:30 am – 5:15 pm Monday through Friday. Response times may be delayed but your advisor is committed to supporting you during this time and will respond as quickly as possible.
(Note: Registration for summer 2020 is currently open and registration for fall 2020 opens on March 30th. As a senior you should plan to finalize your schedule with your advisor and register for your remaining courses during the first week of registration.
In order to comply with FERPA student privacy regulations, email your advisor through Georgia State email and write: “I approve to have an advising appointment remotely with (advisor’s name) via the following method (Skype, Zoom, email, etc.).”
Email your advisor if you have specific problems or questions – for example, if your study abroad opportunity, internship, course, or any other activity that could impact your graduation has been affected.
Remember that during this time, it may take longer than usual for your advisor to respond. Please wait 2 business days before emailing again, unless you have an emergency.
