Academic Advising and Support Programs in the Office for Undergraduate Education (OUE) provides a range of academic advising and support services. The services and programs are designed as a supplement to faculty and departmental advising.

OUE academic advisers work closely with students, faculty and staff to provide group and individual academic advising, explain and interpret academic policies, and connect students to resources and support services on campus. In addition, students who experience medical, personal or other concerns that affect their academic progress may seek the assistance of an academic adviser to determine appropriate options.  

Many students have questions about graduation requirements, course selection and programs of study.  OUE academic advisers will work with students to answer academic policy questions and assist students with making academic decisions. While faculty advisers and departments provide general advising for all students upon their entrance to the College and are responsible for major/minor advising, the OUE academic advisers supplement departmental advising and provide individual consultations for students experiencing special circumstances. 

Students can call (404) 727-6069, log-in to College Connect, or e-mail oue.advising@emory.edu to schedule an appointment.

Academic support is available through a variety of programs ranging from individual consultations, peer tutoring and mentoring, workshops and other programming for specific populations.  Students or faculty who would like more information about specific services and programs should visit Academic Support Programs.
