For advisement and registration, please schedule an appointment.


The Academic Counselors are available to offer general academic support and guidance to all students by appointment and on a drop-in basis. If you have any questions related to academic matters, a good place to turn for answers and referrals is the AAIC.

Some of the specific ways in which the AAIC can assist you are:

  • Academic Counselors, partnering with faculty advisors, offer guidance to students on degree requirements and course scheduling
  • The AAIC serves as a one-stop information center where students can have questions answered and receive referrals on such matters as: How do I register for classes? Who is my assigned academic advisor? Is there a pre-health advisor? Where can I get information on study abroad? Where can I get tutoring help in math? Who do I see about my financial aid package? Am I eligible to join an academic honor society? I have been placed on academic probation....what does that mean?
  • Students can use the AAIC as a resource where they can obtain forms and receive guidance pertaining to important academic matters such as change of major, course add/drop, application to declare a minor, and permission to withdraw from a course.

We invite and encourage all FSC students to become familiar with the resources on this website and to visit us at the AAIC.
