Advisement Center / Dahlonega Campus
A Unit of College of Education
COE Advisement Center
Students are the reason that the College of Education Advisement Center exists. We are here to serve students and believe that one of the best ways to accomplish this is by establishing relationships that communicate how much we care about their success.
Students admitted to University of North Georgia / Dahlonega campus are assigned to an advisor based on their major. Students majoring in Early Childhood/Special Education or Middle Grades Education are assigned as Pre-Education to the Coordinator of Student Advisement (Jan Burt) until they have reached 40/60 hours and are admitted into the Teacher Education Program.
It is the Coordinator's responsibility to meet with students every semester to ensure the student is taking appropriate courses and maintaining the required GPA for admittance into the program. The Coordinator is available to assist students daily with questions and concerns and during all designated advising periods (March & October) each semester. Although advisors provide guidance and assistance to students, it is ultimately the responsibility of each student to be familiar with the requirements of her/his program of study (see Degree Maps, Plans of Study and Advisee Worksheets on web site).
Students assigned to the COE Advisement Center will be notified via their UNG email account when it’s time to make an appointment to meet for advisement. Check UNG email account daily for announcements from SOEADVISE@ung.edu.
Required APIN to access Registration
All students with less than 45 earned hours and those who are not in good academic standing must make an advisement appointment and meet with an advisor prior to registering for courses. Any student with less than 45 hours who attempts to register will be blocked from the registration area in BANNER until they are advised and obtain the required APIN (alternate personal identification number) that will allow them to access the registration. The APIN will be provided to the student once advisement is completed. Once a student earns more than 45 hours or is back in good standing, and APIN is no longer required. But it is strongly recommended that students continue to meet with an advisor each semester.
