With You, Every Step of the Way

Your academic advisor is here to guide you throughout your FRCC journey. They can help you decide on a major, map out the courses needed for your program and answer any questions you have along the way.

Here are some of the things they can help with:

  • Develop your educational plan
  • Choose your major
  • Select the right courses for your program
  • Connect you with resources you may need within the college and the community
  • Answer any transfer questions

At FRCC, each Career & Academic Community has a team of advisors that specialize in that area, so you get expert advice in your field of study.
