Academic Advising for Juniors and Seniors

Faculty advisors for juniors and seniors are listed below, although students are encouraged to contact their departments as some advisors may have changed.

Academic advising is an important part of FVSU’s commitment to the process of educating our students. Advising involves both the development and communication of accurate information regarding course selection, degree programs, resources, university policies/procedures, and career opportunities intended to assist students in attaining educational goals.

Advisors in the University College provide academic advising to freshmen and sophomores (all students who have earned 0-59 credit hours). Faculty provide advisement to students with 60 or more credit hours in their major areas (juniors and seniors). The advisement process involves the development of a mutual relationship between the student and their assigned advisor. During the academic advising process, information regarding course selection, degree programs, resources, university policies/procedures, and career opportunities are provided to students.
