UGA’s online courses and programs provide learning opportunities in a format that expands the traditional classroom experience and allows flexibility for students who physically may not be able to attend a class on campus. Courses and programs are managed by the UGA schools and colleges in which the programs reside.
UGA University Council policy requires faculty members to provide a syllabus for each course that they teach. Please review your syllabi to see that they meet the UGA policy guidelines.
DegreeWorks is a web-based tool that helps students and advisors monitor progress toward degree completion by formatting the degree requirements and completed coursework into an easy-to-read worksheet that shows how courses completed count toward degree requirements.
Use the UGA Bulletin to explore and compare majors, minors and certificates.
Academic Advising Mission Statement
The University of Georgia’s mandatory undergraduate academic advisement programs are an essential part of the undergraduate educational experience which empower students to attain their academic goals.
Faculty and professional academic advisors of the University of Georgia will help undergraduate students understand the options and opportunities for academic programs of study, degree requirements, academic resources, and course selection. Academic advisors will engage students in meaningful relationships designed to support and encourage a challenging and successful undergraduate education. Students will prepare for and participate fully in their advising experience.
Ultimately each undergraduate student is responsible for his/her academic progress at the University of Georgia; advisors cannot provide a guarantee of graduation and/or certification within a specified period of time. The Academic Advising Coordinating Council will provide leadership and support to faculty and professional academic advisors through best practices in training, mentoring, research, and evaluation.
Faculty and staff needing assistance with technology on the Gwinnett campus have two available resources.
Enterprise Information Technology Services (EITS) is the central information technology organization at the University of Georgia. The organization supports faculty, students, and staff at the University of Georgia with the goal of helping the UGA community utilize technology as a tool to enhance teaching and learning, research, and public service. This support is offered through collaborations with colleges, departments, and individual clients. For assistance with software, storage, email and calendar, accessibility and security, or any other service supported by EITS, go to http://eits.uga.edu/support.
Faculty and staff new to UGA also may refer to EITS' online guide for those new to campus.
Gwinnett classes are all equipped with the most up-to-date audio-visual technology including smart-podiums, projectors, screens, and CD/DVD players. Several rooms have video-conferencing capabilities and digital recording capabilities.
All new faculty should contact the Gwinnett IT staff to arrange for training in using the classroom AV and IT equipment. Send requests for training to the Gwinnett Helpdesk.
IT staff are either physically on site or available on call hours and during normal operating hours on Saturday. To ensure that you receive the fastest response for IT assistance, all requests should be sent by email or voice message to the Gwinnett Helpdesk.
Voice messages are automatically transferred through the unified messaging system into email so the IT support person on call will receive your call for assistance. If you do not receive a response within 10 minutes for classroom assistance, please check with the front desk assistant.
For assistance from a facility manager during class, call the facility coordinator or the front reception desk.
