First Year Advising

Your academic advisor is not like your high school guidance counselor. Your advisor is here to assist and work with you to ensure that you meet your academic requirements as you work toward graduation. Advisors are much more than schedule builders; they work with you to build a partnership, a shared responsibility to help you meet your academic goals. We are dedicated to "Building Academic Champions!"

Your advisor is here to help you choose or change a major, make you aware of graduation requirements and interpret academic policy. We can help if you find yourself in academic trouble or are having any personal issues. We are familiar with all the resources UWF offers and can help you find whatever you need. We are your UWF connection and we hope you will visit us often.
