Academic Advising

Scheller College of Business Advisors

Due to public health concerns, Georgia Tech is unable to offer in-person advising at this time.  We are offering students the choice to conduct advising via videoconference but must convey that this method does make ensuring FERPA privacy difficult.  Advisors will conduct video advising in a private location, and recommend that students do the same to limit the amount of information that could be overheard by others in the vicinity.  By agreeing to videoconference-advising, students are confirming they understand this situation. Students should utilize Advisor Link to make appointments.


Academic advising is an integral part of creating an academic plan that incorporates appropriate certificates, minors internships/co-ops, study abroad programs, and research that will make students marketable for top jobs and graduate schools. Students are expected to meet with their advisor at least once per year to ensure they're on track for graduation and understand the numerous options and resources available at the Scheller College of Business and Georgia Tech.
