What is Exploratory Advising?
Exploratory advising is a process that focuses on cross-curricular academic advising, career assessment, guided exploration of majors and careers, and programming to allow students opportunities to interact with advisors, faculty, upper-class students and professionals from different fields, our students can discover their passions and make an informed decision on a major. 
Whether you came to Georgia Institute of Technology with a detailed plan on what programs of study you would pursue or not, exploratory advising is an opportunity to refine your plans and to have a conversation about all of the available pathways.
Exploratory advising is a collaborative effort to help students craft tailored degree plans through the exploration of majors, minors, certificates, and introspective assessments targeted at helping students develop and discover their academic and career goals.
Drop-In Exploratory Advising is suspended for the rest of the semester. Exploratory Advising appointments are available on GradesFirst. Students will be sent a BlueJeans invitation to a virtual advising appointment after they schedule an appointment on GradesFirst.
Time Zone Restrictions?
Do you live in a time zone other than Eastern Standard Time (EST)?
If so, you can still make appointments for exploratory advising!
All appointment times in GradesFirst (www.gatech.gradesfirst.com) are EST ("Atlanta time"). If you do live in a different zone, when you go into GradesFirst to make please, indicate in the comments section where you live and the hour difference between Atlanta and you, e.g.,"Berlin, Germany: 5 hours later."
If the only appointments available to you are outside of your regular operating hours, please indicate this in the comments section as well and make an appointment anyway. I will work with you to figure out something more reasonable between our two zones.
