Office Hours

Do you have questions about your enrollment? Join me via Zoom and we will get you some answers! You can come to Zoom advising at any point during advising hours, with no prior appointment. You will be auto-muted when you enter the Zoom call. If the advisor is still finishing up with the previous inquiring student, you will be placed into a virtual waiting room. Please be patient; some consults are brief, but others can take 10 or 20 minutes. If you cannot attend during regular office hours, please email the UGA to request an appointment.

  1. All students need to sign one Advising DocuSign form 1 or 2 days before attending their advising session (avoid doing so earlier, as these form expire). This will not lock you into any specific path, but it’ll serve as a record of your consult with the Advisor. If you are attempting to clear your PIN, this DocuSign form is compulsory. DocuSigns may be approved without an advising session if students fill out all the classes in the form correctly. Let the UGA know if your PIN needs clearing.
  2. Please fill in the form including the following information:
    1. Contact information, as specified below:
      1. Student name
        Student email
      2. Advisor: Xabier Granja
        Email: xgranja@ua.edu
      3. No need to fill-in anything under Optional Review.
    2. When you get to the form per se, just include your Name, Major, Minor (if any) and your CWID. You don’t need to fill in anything else.
