Our Goals for Your Education

We will spend time with you to ensure you meet the requirements for your desired department and bachelor’s degree. We will help you identify your strengths, helping you gain confidence in your academic future and choices.
The Centralized Advising Team
Florida College uses a shared advising model. Students will start their four-year journey with a specialized program advisor and will focus on excellence on pre-requites leading up to transitioning to a faculty advisor. Once students have declared a major, the student will be transitioned to the faculty chair of their declared program.
Get Peer Support
Peer Support Services combine academic instruction and relatability. Peer mentors who excel academically work to teach underclassmen how to study and understand challenging concepts in an interactive way. Peer Support Services include supplemental instructors, academic labs, and personal tutors.
Supplemental Instructors (SI)
Supplemental Instructors provide specific lower-division sessions to individual classes. SIs attend class with his or her peers to build relationships while also teaching students the skill of studying effectively. During these sessions, students work in group settings through discussions, friendly competitions, and quizzes.
Academic Labs are groups of students who are effective in writing, communication, and math departments. They provide one-on-one mentoring throughout the week for students with projects and assignments across disciplines. Many Florida College faculty members provide extra credit to students who attend these sessions.
Personal Tutors are for-hire students trained in specific subjects. They offer individual sessions for specific students with additional needs in a class. Tutors build an encouraging environment for academic progress throughout the semester.
