New students admitted to Augusta University who are identified as freshmen or sophomores will receive their first semester’s schedule from their Academic Advisor.
Continuing students advised in the Academic Advisement Center are required to meet with their Academic Advisor for formal advising at least once each semester.
Students may notice an “Academic Advisement Advisee” hold on their account. This hold is placed on the account of every student advised through the Academic Advisement Center. It is solely for identification purposes and indicates that you are a student advised in our center. The hold does not block your registration; however, if you attempt to register without meeting with your advisor first, you will have no course options to schedule and thus, will not be permitted to register.
There is nothing you need to do to clear the hold. Once you reach 60 completed credit hours, the hold will be removed and you will go to your major department for academic advisement. For students in pre-admit programs, you must be accepted into the program before we can remove the hold.
Students will receive an email from their Academic Advisor to their augusta.edu email address with instructions and an appointment scheduling link to schedule an appointment for next term advisement.
Note: Students advised in academic departments (60+ credit hours with the exception of pre-admit programs) will receive communication from their major department about the next term advisement process and schedule.
Instructions for creating your schedule, registering, making adjustments and wait listing are listed below under "Registration Steps for Academic Advisement Students."
In order to allow Dual Enrolled (DE) high school students the flexibility to select course times that work with their other activities but also ensure that they only register for courses that have been approved by their high schools and are on the approved Dual Enrollment Program list, Academic Advisors in the Academic Advisement Center (AAC) enter all approved courses in JagTrax on the Plans tab for each student by term.
The students are advised by their high school guidance counselors. The students are processed for admission through the Office of Academic Admissions. Admissions maintains all Participation Agreements required by the Dual Enrollment Program. The AAC is responsible for facilitating the registration process by entering the courses in JagTrax and confirming any necessary course permissions in Banner.
For information about Dual Enrollment, visit the Office of Admissions, Dual Enrollment webpage here.
Remember, to register for your next term courseS, you must meet with your assigned Academic Advisor. Your advisor enters your course options into your JagTrax account, allowing you to register through Schedule Planner.
If you try to access Schedule Planner without meeting with your advisor, your course options will be blank.
You will use Schedule Planner for all registration and schedule adjustment needs until you are no longer advised by the Academic Advisement Center.

How do I add breaks in my schedule?
Breaks are optional but can be useful for blocking out certain periods of time during your day/week where you are working, involved in a collegiate sport, or simply just want an hour break between classes.
