College of Computing advisors are available to answer questions via email and will also offer remote advising appointments via video or audio conference. Students should use their official GT email addresses as the primary method of communicating questions or concerns to their advisors.
FERPA Considerations for remote advising
Due to public health concerns, Georgia Tech is unable to offer in-person advising at this time. We are offering students the choice to conduct advising via video conference, but must convey that this method does make ensuring FERPA privacy difficult. Advisors will conduct video advising in a private location, and recommend that students do the same to limit the amount of information which could be overheard by others in the vicinity. By agreeing to video conference advising, students are confirming they understand this situation.
