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 who need assistance developing an academic plan through graduation and beyond may meet with their assigned advisor. 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 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.
