Academic Advising

Each student in the School of Architecture has access to academic advisors and faculty mentors who can assist students in identifying their individual academic interests and establishing professional, scholarly, and career objectives.

The School of Architecture’s administrative team includes two academic advisors to guide, encourage and support students in the pursuit of their educational and professional goals. They provide information about, and facilitate access to, the breadth of student resources available in the School of Architecture, College of Design, and Georgia Tech.

The academic advisors are readily available to consult for recruitment and admissions, and provide routine advisement for curricular requirements, course registration, and student support services. They also maintain student records and process institutional forms, including student petitions and special requests. The School of Architecture Chair and Associate Chair are available to all students to assist in resolving any issues that cannot be adequately addressed by the advising team.

Architecture students are encouraged to meet with an advisor for any questions or concerns about their academic progress. Advising is required for incoming freshmen, graduating seniors, and students who are not in good academic standing.

To schedule an advising appointment, please contact Robin Tucker or Nitra Wisdom.
