Academic Advising


Q: How can I make an appointment with my Advisor?

A: If you are a CURRENT student, you can schedule an appointment anytime with your assigned Advisor through your student portal.

To schedule: Look under the "Student Academics" index in the FSW portal; locate the "schedule an advising appointment" icon on the right-hand side just below the Canvas icon.

If you are a NEW student that is attending college for the first time, check your Bucs email account for an invitation to an Advising Workshop.

If you are a NEW student with transfer credit, please make an appointment with your advisor in the FSW portal.

For additional important dates, please view the official FSW College Calendar.

What Do Academic Advisors Do?

Academic Advisors at FSW assist you with selecting classes, but that's not all! They will help you explore our academic programs to help you determine which program will help you land your dream career or transfer to a university to further your education. 

How Do I Schedule an Appointment?

You can schedule an appointment with your advisor in the "Student Academics" tab of your FSW Student Portal.

When you schedule an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with further instructions. If you have already scheduled your in-person appointment, please go directly to the Advising Front Desk.
