Academic Advising

Middle Georgia State University recognizes academic advising as a critical component of a successful educational experience. Through the advising sessions students will be provided with accurate and timely information necessary to define and work toward achieving their educational, professional and personal goals.  With the assistance of the academic advisor and the Center for Career and Leadership Development, each student will select a degree program of study and follow a clear course sequenced pathway to graduation. Through collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students will develop cognitive and non-cognitive skills that promote the development of a productive academic mindset.  All students will be advised through the school that houses their major. Contact information for each school is available on the Academic Advising homepage at

Students should refer to the Middle Georgia State University Academic Calendar for advising and registration events at Although students can meet with their advisor throughout the academic year, MGA schedules a specific advising period for returning students in advance of the registration period.
