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.
Each student is assigned an academic advisor upon admission to the college. Students meet with their advisor to do their first registration into classes. Associate in Arts degree seeking students will be required to submit a transfer plan to their advisor at the completion of 30 credit hours. Students may also receive assistance with a question or problem concerning course selection, registration, academic progress, a graduation check, questions or requests for assistance in transferring to a four-year institution. Students planning to transfer to four-year programs should begin early in the freshman year to work with their 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 and Levy campuses, including academic advisement, testing, career exploration, academic support, transfer assistance and personal counseling referrals.
An online advising service is also available to prospective and current students. This service is provided to assist students who have a quick question or concern that would not require an in-person appointment. The email is monitored during business hours and most inquiries receive a response within 24 hours. Full educational plans, degree audits and graduation checks cannot be provided through this service.
