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 pursuing a career in healthcare or law.  We offer one-on-one appointments and walk-ins in addition to various workshops. Please be advised that we do not clear students for registration.

Fall 2022 Advising

You can choose between an in-person appointment or a virtual appointment in SAGE.

If you choose an in-person appointment,  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.

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.
