Academic Advising and Support
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.
Advisers have offices in various locations around campus: White Hall, Few Hall, the SAAC and the Woodruff Residential Center. Students can call (404) 727-6069 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Pre-Major Advising Connections at Emory (PACE)
The Pre-Major Advising Connections at Emory Program (PACE) is a multifaceted academic advising support system that serves students until they declare a major (before the end of their second year.) Prior to their arrival, incoming students are matched with a faculty adviser and peer leaders who help them adjust to college life, explore their passions and plan for academic and career success.
The Office for Undergraduate Education (OUE) and Campus life supplement this advising team and provide educational panels, programs and sessions throughout the first year. These informational meetings serve to further connect students to campus resources and help them identify avenues for academic and personal growth. First-year students enroll in PACE 101 and receive one semester hour of academic credit toward their Emory College degree for successfully completing the program. The grading basis for the course is satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
