  • Attend an advising session once a semester.
  • Prepare for your advising session by writing down any issues, goals and educational plans that are relevant to your academic progress.
  • Track your academic progress each semester by reviewing your degree audit located in Student Central .
  • Read your FSU email regularly to stay informed about changes to university policies, procedures and resources.
  • Take ownership of your education through using campus resources to their fullest extent.
  • Take the initiative and be proactive in consulting faculty, advisors and other mentors for assistance with your degree program and career goals.
  • All advising is done by appointment Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Appointments are scheduled 24 hours in advance and are generally 30 minutes each.
