Connect With An Advisor

Advisors in the Pre-Professional Advising Office meet with all current UGA students as well as UGA alumni who are interested in pursing a career in healthcare or law.  We offer one-on-one appointments and walk-ins in addition to various workshops.

Fall 2021 Advising

For virtual advising appointments, you will be sent an informational email no later than 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment that will include a Zoom link.

If you would prefer an in-person appointment, please email your advisor and they will accommate you. We are located at 130 Memorial Hall. You will need to check-in at the front desk before making your way to the PPAO waiting room.
