Summer Hours May 29-July 28
The Wellstar Advising Center is changing our drop-in availability to the schedule below due to New Student Orientation Season. Please read through this carefully.
How to Visit
When visiting the center as an appointment or drop-in, students can select from three modalities:
2) Virtual via Microsoft Teams
Students are able to meet with advisors in person during operating hours. Please schedule an appointment through EAB or visit during our drop-in hours.
2) Virtual via Microsoft Teams
Students are able to meet with advisors through Microsoft Teams as a virtual meeting during operating hours. Links to join are NOT sent out for this type of session. Instead, students will receive a call from their Student Teams account. Therefore, you must ensure you are logged in with your KSU credentials only. Please schedule an appointment through EAB or visit during our drop-in hours.
When scheduling an appointment by phone, an Advisor will contact via the number included in the notes. Sometimes our numbers show as spam calls, but if you receive this during the time of your appointment, it will most likely be us.
If you are using this modality as a drop-in, please call us to be placed in the queue.
Once in the queue, an advisor will reach out to you soon after.
Regular Drop-in Hours in FALL/SPRING
If you are unable to find an available appointment, visit or contact our office during drop-in times by calling 470.578.3211 or visiting our office in Prillaman Hall, suite 1003. Our queue operates on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning you cannot schedule this ahead of time and you will meet with the first available advisor.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who does the Advising Center serve?The Wellstar College Advising Center only serves current KSU students.
What is academic advising?
Academic Advising is a student-centered, collaborative process with the purpose of helping students process and achieve their academic goals.

Wellstar College students now have assigned advisors who all have knowledge about the various Wellstar College programs. To find out who your advisor is log in to Owl Express by clicking here and view your Degree Works (under the registration tab).
Do I need to see an advisor?Although advising is not compulsory after the first year, we strongly encourage you to see an advisor. We can provide information you may not be able to garner on your own, saving you time and frustration.

What qualifies as a drop-in?
Drop-in advising is a 10-minute advising session on a first-come, first-served basis.
Services available during drop-in advising: questions or information on the current or upcoming semester, questions on prerequisite courses, and providing students with resources for growth and autonomy in the registration process.
What does it mean to have a “gated” major?A gated major means that your declared major may require either a minimum GPA requirement, completed prerequisite courses, or both to be eligible for admission into the program. 5 of the 6 of our Wellstar majors are gated (All except for Integrated Health Science). Be sure to meet with an advisor every semester to determine what program requirements you must meet if your major is gated, what courses you should complete each semester, and ensure you remain on track for graduation.
In Owl Express, my major is listed as "Interest." What does this mean?Some majors require either a minimum GPA requirement, completed prerequisite courses, or both to be eligible for admission into the program. Some also require that students complete an application. Once a student meets the program admission requirements and is accepted into the program, they will drop the “interest” label.
