IMPORTANT CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19 (as of 4/23/2021)

 

GT Pre-Teaching Advising offers remote advising appointment and drop-ins as part of our regular practice. Due to COVID-19, we will continue to use a hybrid model of advising in Spring 2021 and until further notice.  Click here for updates about GT's response to COVID-19

Full-length advisement appointments 
All appointments are currently virtual except by special request and until further notice.  
 
Regularly scheduled appointments will be held virtually via  BlueJeans unless an in-person meeting is specifically requested. Schedule a full-length, virtual appointment through Advisor Link at https://advisor.gatech.edu.  GradesFirst is no longer used.
 
For information regarding how to set up appointments in the new system, go to https://neweraadvising.gatech.edu/student-resources.
 
Pre-Teaching advisors will be available for in-person appointments  only by special request.  To request an in-person appointment, email sbelmonte@gatech.edu.
 
All advisees and advisors are required to wear a mask when inside buildings on campus, including for advising appointments. 
 
Please note that teleconferencing makes ensuring FERPA privacy difficult. Advisors will conduct video advising in a private location, and we recommend that students do the same to limit the amount of information which could be overheard by others in the vicinity. By agreeing to videoconference-advising, students are confirming they understand this situation. 
 
All appointments are scheduled for Eastern Daylight Time/Eastern Standard Time. Students located in other time zones may contact their advisor directly for scheduling options that better fit their schedules. 
 
Drop-in hours
All drop-in hours are currently virtual via BlueJeans and until further notice. There are no in-person drop-in hours in an effort to maintain the safety and health of advisors and students. Please note that BlueJeans meetings are public spaces; anybody with the appropriate links can join those meetings, so they are not ideal for private conversations. Quick, general questions are best for the BlueJeans hour. Schedule an appointment for more personal conversations.  
 
There are no drop-in hours during holiday closures.
 

You can join Bluejeans drop-ins at these hours: 

Mondays 8:30-9:30 am (Eastern Standard/Daylight Time):  https://bluejeans.com/4007039561  (canceled May 31)
Thursdays 3:00-4:00 pm (Eastern Standard/Daylight Time):  https://bluejeans.com/4007039561 (canceled April 29 and June 3)

NOTE: Advising via video conference makes 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 which could be overheard by others in the vicinity.  By agreeing to video conference advising, students are confirming they understand this situation.
