SPOTLIGHT

FYRST Advising Program at the Rock . . .

Mission of the FYRST Advising Program

Advising services will provide assistance that will help you to: 

·         Receive academic advising from pre-enrollment to orientation and throughout your first year

·         Acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to select an academic program

·         Develop a more thorough understanding of your own purpose and goals in college as well as those of the University

·         Clarify your life/career goals

·         Develop an education plan for the realization of these goals

·         Become knowledgeable about general degree requirements and procedures

Finally, FYRST advising should act as a referral service to other campus agencies.

The faculty and staff of FYRST believe that students succeed academically by developing sound student learning, success strategies, and attitudes in a challenging curricular environment. These habits are enhanced through extensive and positively intervening academic advising and learning assistance experiences.
