The start of the Fañomnåkan 2022 semester brings with it a new hub for student success in academic, financial, and career navigation: the all-new Triton Advising Center.

Many students can resonate with the fact that college can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if they’re new to the process and feel surrounded by information but have no starting point. 

Developed by a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the TAC aims to be not only a starting point, but a continued resource for UOG students throughout their academic journey. As the TAC logo, in the shape of a compass, suggests, the center aims to provide direction. The center’s focus is in three key areas: academics, financial solvency, and career development.

The TAC replaces the former Student Advisement & Counseling Services office under EMSS, becoming the advisement hub for undergraduate students until they’ve declared a major and have an assigned adviser within their program. It also works in conjunction with the Financial Aid Office and the Career Development Office, directing students to their available resources and specialists. 

Students can visit the Triton Advising Center kiosk, housed within the Student Center on campus, or visit the TAC webpage to schedule advisement appointments, access tools and resources, or simply ask questions.
