How do I declare a major or minor?
Discuss your decision with your undergraduate advisor. Students may now declare a major or minor through Athena. No departmental forms are necessary.  

How do I take a placement test?
Tests are administered in Clarke Howell Hall from 8:30 to 3:00. The Foreign Languages advisers do not receive test results. Check University Testing Services of UGA for more information.

What do I need to do when it's close to graduation time?
For the procedures in the College, go to the Franklin College web site. In the Department, you must see your undergraduate advisor who will give you the forms for outcome assessment. These forms must be completed before your advisor will complete the graduation checklist required by the College.

 How do I obtain a minor completion form?

To declare a minor in Spanish, French, Portuguese, or Italian, please log in to Athena and follow the directions listed in this link

What should I do if I want to study abroad?
Discuss your interests with the undergraduate advisor in the department and an advisor in the Office of International Education in the Bank of America Building. That office has information about various programs and will advise you about transferring credit. Office of International Education Study Abroad

You need to obtain a Credit Approval Form from that office or online. Plan to attend the Study Abroad Fair that is held in October. Consider UGA sponsored programs (see Student Resources on this web site).

Should I double major in two languages or major in Romance Languages?
A Romance Languages major enables you to have a major concentration in Portuguese, which is not available as a major at this time. It also gives you the flexibility to study more than one language. However, a full major in most cases only requires four more courses and is needed if you plan to get certification to teach in high school or apply for graduate school in that language.

Who should I see if I have a problem getting into a course or if courses needed for graduation are not available?
Drop-Add is conducted entirely online. Please consult Athena for availability of classes.
