Our academic advisors want to help you be successful. We are here to help you explore educational opportunities at FRCC, choose a certificate program or degree path, select your courses and create an educational plan. We can also help you with time management, transfer planning, connecting you to campus resources and much more.
How to Connect with an Advisor
Make an appointment
We encourage students to make an appointment to meet with an academic advisor at least once a semester. To schedule an appointment, please call (303) 404-5000. For students who are not able to come to campus, we can set-up a phone advising appointment.
If you have a quick question or two for an academic advisor, you can stop by for a drop-in. Academic advisors are available on a first come, first served basis. Students can check-in at the Welcome Desk. Please note the last time to check-in for drop-in is 15 minutes before we close.
Email us for quick answers to general advising questions.
For New Students
If you are new to FRCC – welcome! We want to make sure you have all the tools you need to get started here. Before you can meet with an academic advisor, you will need to attend a Get Started Session. See the schedule for the Get Started sessions.
Preparing for Your Advising Session
We strongly believe in a shared responsibility between you and your academic advisor. Though you are ultimately responsible for the decisions you make as a student, our academic advisors are knowledgeable and available to help answer your questions along the way.
When you meet with your academic advisor, be sure to:
- Provide unofficial transcripts, ACT/SAT scores or Accuplacer® scores from within the last 5 years, if you are a new student to Front Range Community College.
- Bring any documents you completed or reviewed in previous academic advising sessions. This may include catalog or degree worksheets, academic plans, transfer guides, or recommended course suggestions.
- Bring helpful information you have received from faculty or specific transfer information from institutions you may be interested in transferring to.
- Print out, review, and bring a copy of your Degree Check. Degree Check is a useful tool to help you track your progress so you understand how your courses and educational plan are meeting your degree requirements. You can find the Degree Check on the Student tab in eWOLF, along with instructions on how to use the program. If you do not know how to use Degree Check, this also a great question for your academic advising session.
