First Year Academic Advising

Academic Center for Excellence

The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) provides professional academic advising for all incoming first year students as well as freshmen transfer students and any level student who is still exploring majors. First-Time-In-College (FTIC) students are required to attend New Student Orientation prior to enrolling in their first term at UNF. 

Students are assigned an academic advisor at New Student Orientation or at their initial ACE advising visit. Their assigned advisor will partner with them in making a successful transition to college, assist them with major exploration and course scheduling as well as help students in setting and achieving their academic goals.

ACE also partners with Faculty members through our Early Academic Alert System (EAAS) and Mid-term grade reports. Faculty refer underperforming students through the myWings grade portal. Academic advisors are able to intervene to determine areas of concern and provide appropriate assistance and/or connect students to additional support resources if necessary. Advisors provide feedback to faculty regarding each student referred.

Visit the ACE website for additional information. Meet the staff and stay informed on academic policies, updates and academic information in general.
