Advising Information

Need Advisement?  Read this first!

  • Advisement is conducted on the basis of current UWG coursework (via Wolf Watch) and/or a completed official transfer evaluation done by UWG's Registrar. Please be advised that an official evaluation can take several weeks after you are admitted to UWG and registered for UWG Orientation.
  • Current UWG students must have an appointment in order to meet with an advisor, with the exception of Add/Drop and On-Time Registration periods (See dates/times below per semester). Read instructions below for scheduling an appointment.
  • High school students interested in nursing at UWG and wishing to speak with a nursing advisor should first arrange to participate in a daily campus visit through Undergraduate Admissions or attend a UWG Preview Day by making a reservation through Undergraduate Admissions.
  • Prospective Transfer - Walk-in advising is only available for Prospective Transfer Students who are participating in the Office of Admissions "Transfer Tuesday."  Please schedule your "Transfer Tuesday" by clicking the following link: Undergraduate Admissions. If you have general questions about nursing at UWG, please email nurs@westga.edu
