Academic Advising

The Academic Advising center is an integral part of the division of Academic Development. The Advising center provides assistance in academic planning and the selection of majors and minors. Services provided by the Advising center include: first semester registration of all new students (freshmen and transfer), academic reporting, assignment of advisors, and academic counseling for students seeking to maintain or achieve a specific grade point average. The Academic Advising center also provides advisement services in the absence of the primary advisor.


Upon entering Gardner-Webb University, the student is assigned an advisor and is encouraged to view the advising relationship as a partnership for success. First-year freshmen seeking a bachelor degree are enrolled in a First-Year program course (UNIV 101 or UNIV 111). Students are eligible to declare a major after completing this course. The instructor for the First-Year program course will serve as the advisor until the student officially declares a major. After an official declaration has been processed, the student will be assigned to a faculty advisor in the department of their chosen field of study.


Transfer students not taking the First-Year Program course will be assigned an advisor in the Academic Advising center until the declaration process is complete. Transfer students are encouraged to officially declare a major before or during their first semester of study at Gardner-Webb University. Academic Advising is located in the Student Success Center, 3rd floor of the Tucker Center.
