Orientation Support


Welcome to your University of Georgia! Whether you are a first-year student or transferring from another school, the Division of Academic Enhancement is here to support your transition into the University of Georgia and sustain your progress while you are here. On this page you will find additional information about our services and resources you can access before and after you get on campus.

Academic Coaching

The DAE provides students across campus with individualized support through Academic Coaching. You can think of an Academic Coach as someone who you can talk to about your individualized plan for success at UGA. Our goal is help you reach your goals whether that be getting an “A” in your Chemistry class or finding motivation to complete the semester. Our trained, certified coaches come from a variety of degrees and backgrounds so you can find someone who is the right fit for you.

In Academic Coaching sessions, you can discuss anything from combatting procrastination to finding the right study tool for a specific class to understanding how to balance time commitments. Academic Coaches help you find the next right step in your journey to success! Interested in meeting with an Academic Coach? Click here to get started.
