As midterms and spring break approach, the Office of the Dean of Students is here to provide support to help students achieve overall success at Georgia State University. We recommend measuring where you are now and not after spring break. Our resources are available to help students once they have measured where they are in the semester to put them on the right track. Here are some of our support services:

  • Emergency Assistance – If an emergency occurs that interferes with a student’s class attendance, assistance for students and families is available. The Office of the Dean of Students will coordinate with relevant campus resources to support the student. Another form of Emergency Assistance can include financial hardship. Students needing emergency financial assistance should complete this form.
  • Emergency Withdrawal – When there is a severe medical problem, traumatic event, etc. students can apply for an Emergency Withdrawal if the nonacademic emergency prevents a student from completing their coursework.
  • Embark Network – The Embark Network connects students with on and off campus resources for assistance with food insecurity, housing, homeless verification, employment referrals and other services. The Embark Network will work with students to navigate university policies and processes.

If you find yourself struggling academically, there are resources available to assist you. The Office of the Dean of Students encourages all students to uphold standards of intellectual and academic integrity. Please refer to the Policy on Academic Honesty for basic and minimum standards of conduct in academic matters.

Finally, the Office of the Dean of Students continues to support student development through the Creating Effective Citizens program, which enhances Georgia State students’ community experience through targeted signature programming and activities that facilitate seamless college to career transitions intended to foster student success at Georgia State and beyond. Several workshops to help balance students’ personal and academic concerns are offered, such as The Ripple: Spring Break & COVID, Consent Circles, Conflict Resolution, and Decision Making. These workshops can be facilitated upon request. Visit the Creating Effective Citizens page for upcoming events and the recognition process.
