How do I prepare for advisement?

1. Check the online schedule of classes and prepare a list of classes you’d prefer to take and a list of alternates. If possible, you should have at least two alternates for every preferred class.

2. Be familiar with your program of study. A curriculum sheet for your major is available in the SSC and online.

3. Be familiar with your University Catalog. It’s filled with great information.

How to avoid missing important email messages?

You can actually have your Georgia Southern University email forwarded to your personal email account that you check every day. Go to WINGS, then to PERSONAL INFORMATION, then to UPDATE EMAIL ADDRESSES. You can select a preferred email address and your email will be forwarded to that address. You can also update changes in your home address at that site. It’s really important to keep your PERSONAL INFORMATION up-to-date on WINGS. So make it a habit to check your PERSONAL INFORMATION and update it once a semester.
