Welcome to our Accounting Advising page!

We have included some general information about advising for our major, but we are always happy to discuss anything in more detail. If you are an Accounting Major, the best way to get further information would be to email your advisor (contacts listed on the side). For non-Accounting students with general inquiries about the major, please email acctadvise@uga.edu.

Note: Students who have not yet been admitted to Terry College are not advised in this department. Contact exploration@uga.edu to find out the process of being assigned to an advisor for “pre-business.”
