How to Prepare for Your Appointment

To get the most out of your advising session, make sure to bring:

  • Any useful information you have about transfer requirements (if you’re hoping to transfer your credits from FRCC to another college or university).

  • A copy of your Degree Check in eWOLF—an online tool that helps you track your academic progress.

  • Any questions you have about courses, programs, schedules, or your educational plans.
