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 on 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. If you have requested a Zoom appointment, please check your Bucs email for an email from your advisor with a link. If you have requested a phone appointment, your advisor will call you at the number listed in your FSW Portal.
