There are six advisement offices on campus. The Student Advisement Center, 255 Sparks Hall, serves freshmen and sophomores who have earned less than 42 credit hours (including transfer credit). If you have earned less than 42 credit hours, please call us at 404-413-2300. If you have earned more than 42 hours, please contact the Georgia State University operator at 404-413-2000. Tell the operator your intended major and you will be directed to your Office of Academic Assistance.

If you are a current student, stop by your assigned Academic Advisor's office to complete a form. You may consider making an appointment to discuss any entrance or prerequisite requirements before entering into a specific major. Not every major requires a concentration, and not every major allows for a minor.
Remember: If you are a new freshman, you must declare your major within one calendar year after your first semester of enrollment at Georgia State, or a hold will be placed on your registration.
If you are new student beginning classes in an upcoming semester and wish to change your major, you must wait until after the first week of classes to make the change with your Advisement Office. If you have extenuating circumstances and need to make a change immediately, please contact the Office of Admissions in Sparks Hall, Rm. 200, or call 404-413-2500 for assistance.
