If you are an undergraduate student with less than 90 completed hours at Georgia State University, you are required to seek advisement at the University Advisement Center at 25 Park Place. Freshmen will see their advisor in Suite 1400 (14th floor), while Sophomores and Juniors will see their advisors in Suite 1300 (13th floor). Seniors (students with 90 or more credit hours) will see their advisor in their College Office of Academic Assistance (OAA).
Your College of Education OAA Advisor:
Undergraduate advisors in the Office of Academic Assistance and Graduate Admissions (OAA) in the College of Education (COE) will advise you regarding all aspects of your degree and major. Your OAA advisor will:
Mondays 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Tuesdays 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Walk-in advisement is for quick questions which should not take over 10 minutes. Program advisement requires a scheduled appointment with an advisor (see next question below for advisor contact information).

Professional assistance in selecting a career area is available through University Career Services
These academic plans provide sample program curriculum for undergraduate students from their Freshman year to graduation. Please understand, however, that these plans cannot substitute for face-to-face advising with departmental faculty or an OAA advisor.
