I need help planning my schedule. Who should I contact?
Every student enrolled at FSC is assigned an academic advisor to assist with scheduling, meeting degree requirements, and identifying academic and personal goals. To save time and tuition dollars, it is important that you talk to your advisor on a regular basis. It is your responsibility to schedule an appointment to speak with an advisor as early as possible after entering FSC. | Look up your academic advisor by program
