Student Advising

The mission of academic advising at CF is to provide students with comprehensive individualized and group services that support academic achievement, retention, graduation, university transfer, employment and personal success.

Students who need assistance developing an academic plan through graduation and beyond may meet with an advisor in their program division. Advisors in the Enrollment Services Center are available on a walk-in basis. Students may also receive assistance with a question or problem concerning course selection, registration, academic progress or a graduation check. Questions or requests for assistance in transferring to a four-year institution should be directed to the A.A. degree advisors in the Enrollment Services Center in the Bryant Student Union. Students planning to transfer to four-year programs should begin early in the freshman year to work with an advisor in planning their coursework to include prerequisites for transfer and any other admission requirements.

A variety of student support services is available through the Advising Department at the Citrus Campus, including academic advisement, testing, career exploration, academic support, transfer assistance and personal counseling referrals.

The educational advisors in Enrollment Services at the Ocala Campus are available for assistance to A.A. degree-seeking students. A.S. and certificate-seeking students should make an appointment with the educational advisor assigned to their program of study or area of interest (Business and Technology, Ewers Century Center; Criminal Justice, Building 31; and Health Sciences, Building 35; at the Ocala Campus). Students seeking advisement for the vocational programs should go to Building 17 at the Ocala Campus. Counselors/advisors are also available at the Citrus Campus and Levy Center and in CF’s TRIO Programs for those who qualify. B.A.S. students should go to the Ewers Century Center and B.S. students should go to the University Center at the Ocala Campus for advising assistance.

An online advising service is also available to prospective and current students. This 24-hour service (peak times may take a little longer for a response) is provided to assist students who have a quick question or concern that would not require an in-person appointment. Full educational plans, degree audits and graduation checks cannot be provided through this service.
