Academic Advising by College
Students admitted to UNF with less than 30 credit hours will be advised in the First Year Advising Office (formerly the Academic Center for Excellence) from Orientation through successful completion of their first year. This includes new freshmen students from high school bringing in any amount of accelerated credit such as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), CLEP, Dual Enrollment and those freshmen who earn their AA degree while completing high school. Upon a student’s declaration of a major and achieving the appropriate GPA, eligible students will transition to their college advising office at the completion of earning 30 credit hours or more. Students who choose to continue their major exploration or who are not eligible to transition will continue to be advised by their assigned First Year Advising Office advisor.
Transfer students admitted with a declared major and 30 hours or more of transfer coursework will be advised by their college advising office. Exploring or undecided transfer students with 30 hours or more of transfer work will begin their academic advising in the First Year Advising Office until they are eligible to transition to their college academic advising unit.
Students admitted to the UNF Hicks Honors College will be advised by an academic advisor in the Hicks Honors College from orientation through graduation. Upon earning 60 credit hours, students will be dually advised by their Hicks Honors College advisor and an academic advisor in their college advising office.
