Graduate students are assigned a faculty advisor or a professional advisor in the Graduate Academic Services Center (GASC). See advising information on your program’s webpage or find your advisor’s name in WINGS by following the directions located in the frequently asked questions below.
Advisement takes place in the advisor’s office or by telephone, mail, or e-mail, as appropriate. Since many the College’s programs are developed to enable students to meet the certification requirements of the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, it is critical that students meet with their advisor to plan their programs of study. Students should also consult their graduate advisor for information on any exit comprehensive assessment (if required) for the M.Ed. or Ed.S. program.

*SPAGE will offer tort liability insurance to teacher candidates only.
How do I know if a course is offered fully online?
A number of graduate-level programs and courses are offered online. See the College of Education’s Degrees & Programs webpage for links to fully online program information. You may also use the Course Search option to find course offerings for a specific term. A fully online course is identified by “F” in the section number (Ex. 01F, 02F, etc.).
Who is my advisor?
Your advisor is listed on your WINGS account. Check each semester prior to being advised as your assigned advisor may change. View your advisor through WINGS by doing the following:
- Log into your MyGeorgiaSouthern account and click on “WINGS”
- Select the “Student Services and Financial Aid” area
- Select “Registration”
- Select “View Student Information and Assigned Advisor”
Where do I find my RAN number?
You must have your RAN (Registration Access Number) before registering in WINGS. Students have a different RAN for each semester. Graduate students will receive their RAN via MyGeorgiaSouthern – after logging in, find the link labeled “Lookup RAN”.
What do I do if I get a registration error?
Visit the Office of the Registrar’s registration error website for a list of common errors students receive during registration and solutions.

A student who does not enroll for three or more consecutive semesters must re-apply to (and be accepted into) a graduate program before being considered for re-entry.
How do I access my online classes?
Classes are located within your Folio account in MyGeorgiaSouthern. To find more information on how to get started with Folio visit https://sites.google.com/a/georgiasouthern.edu/folio-student/home-icon.

I cannot see my classes in Folio, what should I do?
Please contact your instructor because they have to activate your Folio class before it shows up under your Folio.
How do I apply for graduation?

How do I receive my certificate upgrade or endorsement?
