Academic Advising


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

A: If you are a CURRENT student, you can schedule an appointment with the your Advisor through your student Portal. Appointments are available up until Friday, August 13th.

To schedule: Look under the "Student Academics" tab in the FSW Student Portal to locate your Advisor's contact information and a link that you can use to schedule an appointment.

After August 13th we will move to Express Advising which works on a first-come, first-serve basis and is primarily in-person advising at our campus locations.
