As a returning student, you have completed coursework at Athens State.

Student Support

For the most part, the Student Success Center can work with students on topics such as:

  • The Orientation Guide is a good resource to refresh yourself on key tools
  • A specific question, but do not know where to start
  • Action plan for GPA improvement and academic probation
  • What is the next step(s) or what should be considered
  • What are the required classes for the major/minor (Degree Works)
  • Navigating gaps in general education requirements (100 and 200 level classes)
  • Change a major/minor and how it affects student progress towards bachelor’s completion
  • Registration assistance
  • Appropriate usage of university policies and/or procedures such as course retake
  • Withdrawing from a course after Add/Drop Week and possible consequences
  • A link between the student and the university
  • Readmission (please see Re-Admitting Students below)

Appropriate Contact

At times, the appropriate academic guidance will require the student’s faculty advisor or professional staff from within the specific college such as Teacher Education Services for field experience and internship questions. Although, with hours from 8 am to 4:30 pm Mon. through Fri., the Student Success Center remains a good place to start to get pointed in the correct direction.


  • Be sure to use Degree Works for course offerings and degree requirements. This tool will answer any questions about course offerings and teaching formats as you plan your future semesters.
  • Looking for online class options? Use Degree Works to see what of your course requirements are offered online in a given semester and then begin to narrow course options based on what classes you have the perquisites to take.
  • Register for the classes you can as soon as registration opens, then adds others later as needed. There is no penalty to add and drop classes and payment is not due until much later after registration opens–Check the Link toImportant Dates for the last day to add/drop and payment due.
