Early Bird Advising
Early Bird Advising (EBA) is a two-week event conducted in the fall term and a one-week event conducted in the spring at each instructional site of Georgia Highlands College. It provides ready access to faculty advisors for students who wish to discuss long-range course planning in their program of study. Long-range planning helps ensure that students complete their programs or transfer goals in a timely manner. In addition to long-range planning, students will have an opportunity to look at the upcoming term and make appropriate choices based on their needs. The importance of Early Bird Advisement is that advisors and students focus on how to meet the requirements of an entire program or transfer to a four-year institution in the most efficient manner across several semesters. Questions, such as how a change of major would affect existing credits, are also covered during Early Bird Advising for those considering a course of study change.
Two weeks prior to EBA, posters at each site will show the advisors available in each discipline and students will be able to make appointments with an advisor in their discipline, major, or interest. Sign-up sheets for EBA will be posted on office doors of faculty advising members or students may contact the advising office at their location.
IMPORTANT: If you have holds, we strongly encourage you to see an advisor BEFORE registration begins--if you wait and come during registration, your waiting time may be longer than anticipated.
Early Bird Advising dates for the 2012-2013 school year are:
- Fall 2012: October 15 - October 25
- Spring 2013: March 18 - March 22
