Academic Advisement

An integral part of college is the selection of major, acceptance to that program, and commitment to the development of a scholarly career path.

At Augusta University, you will take some time in your first terms to reflect and test which is the right path for you. While you explore, select, and confirm your major, Academic Advisement advisors will help you sound out your ideas and clarify your options. Although you have the primary responsibility for developing and implementing your educational plans, our advisors assist you in building toward your goals. Take the initiative to develop close working relationships with the center’s staff. Make excellent use of these and all your Augusta University resources. Let them help you be more successful.

Notes & Dates

Advisement for Fall 2016 has begun for those advised in Academic Advisement. Check your JagMail for a GradesFirst appointment link to make a "Next Term Appointment"

Instructors are being asked to indicate progress on freshmen cohorts and student athletes. If you get a GradesFirst Alert, see your advisor and professor promptly to get back on track!

Registration for Fall 2016 will remain open throughout the summer. Verify specifics with your advisor. Use POUNCE registration menu options to check holds, confirm classes and link to payment. If you have an “Academic Advisement Advisee” hold, then you are advised and registered through Academic Advisement.

Exam times can differ from class times - confirm date, time and site with your professor. Add extra study periods to review in small bites rather than long marathons. 

To see term grades, log into POUNCE and follow menus. Stop by Academic Advisement to share how you did or to ask questions – we’re here even between terms!
