An integral part of college is the selection of major, acceptance to that program, and commitment to the development of a scholarly career path.

At GRU, you will take some time in your first terms to reflect and test which is the right path for you. While you explore, select, and confirm your major, Academic Advisement and Career Services advisors will help you sound out your ideas and clarify your options. Although you have the primary responsibility for developing and implementing your educational plans, our advisors assist you in building toward your goals. Take the initiative to develop close working relationships with the center’s staff. Make excellent use of these and all your GRU resources. Let them help you be more successful.




Advisement Notes & Dates

Fall Pause - Friday, October 16th. No classes! Our office will also be closed that day for Professional Development.

Advisement for Spring 2016 will begin soon for those advised in Academic Advisement. Check your JagMail for GradesFirst appointment link to make a "Next Term Appointment".

Instructors are being asked to indicate progress on freshmen cohorts and student athletes. If you get a GradesFirst Alert, see your advisor and professor promptly to get back on track!

Considering a withdrawal? Make appointments to discuss your progress: first with your professor and then with your advisor. Gather a clear understanding of your options, then follow through well before midterm, Mon October 12th.

Registration for Spring 2016 will begin in November. Verify specifics with your advisor. Use POUNCE registration menu options to check holds, confirm classes and link to payment. If you have an “Advisement Required” hold, then you are advised and registered through Academic Advisement.

Exam times can differ from class times - confirm date, time and site with your professor. Add extra study periods to review in small bites rather than long marathons. FA15 exams will run December 7 - 11.

To see term grades, log into POUNCE and follow menus. Stop by Academic Advisement to share how you did or to ask questions – we’re here even between terms!

Academic Advisement presents Major Fest! Wednesday, October 7th, 10:30am-1:30pm in the JSAC Ballroom. Build your net! Meet & mingle! Explore GRU majors! Come & get free stuff!
