If you find you are unable to fulfill your obligations as a student, or need help dealing with situations—personal, medical, financial or otherwise—that may affect your ability to succeed at UNF, you should seek help immediately. In most cases, you are going to notify the parties that need to know such as your academic advisor or professor if your classes are being affected by the situation. In situations that are very complicated or sensitive in nature, you could contact the Student Ombudsman, Andrea Adams-Manning in the Dean of Students Office. She can provide impartial, confidential advice, and in certain situations can communicate information about your circumstances to faculty and help you seek solutions that are acceptable to all parties. The UNF administration, your professors, and the International Studies Program itself, are all better positioned to help you solve problems when you seek intervention early.
