Furlough Day!

Due to an elementary school chicken dinner late this afternoon ("winner, winner chicken dinner" as my co-worker and friend Charlie would say) and a furlough day tomorrow, I will not be back in the office until Monday. As such, I will not have any new information on deposits, transfer decisions, wait-list questions, or if a new Uga has been selected as mascot. I will try to answer any and all questions on my return (except for Uga, as I have no clue). Have a great weekend, and Go Dawgs!

  3. I am a Summer transfer student wanting to attend May-mester orientation but register for Summer thru classes. I am worried about a class filling up and would like to register sooner. Is it OK to sign up for an earlier orientation?

  4. Anon: I would seriously suggest you NOT do this, as it may cause you problems down the road, and it will definitely cause us problems. The Maymester orientation is for Maymester, so leave it for them. I would not worry too much about summer classes filling up, as summer is generally not the most hectic classroom time of the year. Just take the steps that orientation tells you and things will go smoothly.

  5. I am not sure if you can answer this but do I register for classes or does UGA pick my classes for me? I ask because picking my own classes will be harder due to the fact that many classes will be filled up by the time that I hear a decision.

  6. Anon: During orientation, you will meet with an advisor to talk about classes, the path towards graduation, major expectations, etc. At this time, you and the advisor will most likely look at the classes you will need in the future, and plan out what you will take. The advisor will clear you to register for classes (this happens before each term you enroll at UGA), and you would then sign up for classes yourself. I cannot say what classes will be filled up or not at any specific time, and I would not guess as to the situation yet.

  7. Hi
    I tried registering for orientation, but it says the site is closed?

  8. Anon: I believe that the summer orientation reservation site will open up later in the afternoon.
