Resources for Current Students

Student Resources

UGA-Griffin provides students with all the tools to be successful laying the foundation for a 97% retention rate.

New Student Orientation

Undergraduate orientation is a one-day session that takes place the week before school starts. The sessions consist of a presentation by Academic Affairs and Student Affairs regarding policies/procedures and general information. After the session, students have the opportunity to meet with program coordinators, as well as financial aid and registrar representatives; gain access to their MyID and email; and receive access cards to campus.

Graduate students are given a brief orientation session on the first night of class.


Because of the breadth of academic programs available at the University of Georgia and the unique requirements of many programs, academic advising is handled by the individual schools and colleges. UGA-Griffin students are advised on-site each semester by the academic advisor for their program of study.

Counseling Services

On-site counseling services are offered to all UGA-Griffin students. If you are a UGA-Griffin student and are interested in scheduling a counseling appointment, fill out and sumbit the online counseling appointment form. Students who make an appointment with the counselor should fill out the Counseling Intake Form and bring it with them to their first appointment.

Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)

Many resources are available to UGA students impacted by relationship violence, sexual violence, stalking and harassment. There is help both on and off the UGA Griffin campus. The University of Georgia’s Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is intended to coordinate and assist the University of Georgia in delivering the highest quality of services to victims/survivors of sexual assault. Students at UGA-Griffin who are in need of SART services can download the SART Resources Chart (pdf) for more information about local resources.

UGA Bulletin

Use the UGA Bulletin to explore and compare majors, minors and certificates, as well as to research courses to take.

Class Registration

Registration and adjusting schedules, including dropping and adding classes, is one of several options available to students in Athena, the UGA registration system. Additional information is provided by the Office of the Registrar.

Testing Services

The Office of Student Affairs provides testing information and services for Constitution and History exams for UGA Griffin students. Students who need to take one or more of these tests should fill out the OSA Testing Registration form at least five (5) days prior to the scheduled exam.


DegreeWorks is a web-based tool that helps students and advisors monitor progress toward degree completion by formatting the degree requirements and completed coursework into an easy-to-read worksheet that shows how courses completed count toward degree requirements.

Financial Aid

The Office of Student Financial Aid informs prospective and current students of the resources and services available to them to secure funds for financing their education. The office advises students of their eligibility for financial assistance in a timely manner and educates them about the financial and academic responsibilities associated with the receipt of that aid.
