Undergraduate Student Advising
UPDATE: Currently the College of Education & Human Development Office of Academic Assistance is available to assist students virtually. Throughout the spring semester, we will generally have a staff member in the office on Monday and Wednesday to direct you toward the appropriate person who can assist you. Regular operating hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Students can schedule advising appointments using the Navigate app or by emailing their advisor directly (see below). If you are a College of Education & Human Development student and are unable to reach your academic advisor, please email Steve Mendenhall at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Undergraduate students with less than 90 earned credit hours are advised in the University Advisement Center (25 Park Place N.E., Atlanta). Advisors assigned to freshman, sophomore, and junior education majors are on the fifth floor. Perimeter College students should contact the advising office on their campus.
Students in College of Education & Human Development majors with 90 or more earned credit hours have their own senior advisor in the CEHD Office of Academic Assistance (OAA), who are assigned by major. Students can schedule an appointment with their OAA advisor using the Navigate app, emailing their advisor directly (see below), or by calling 404-413-8000.
