First Year Academic Advising
First Year Advising Office (formerly the Academic Center for Excellence)
The First Year Advising Office 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 First Year Advising Office 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.
First Year Advising 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.
