Academic Counseling & Student Success

Falling behind in your classes? We can help.

The FCRH Dean's Office offers proactive academic counseling services to students who would like to improve their organizational skills and course performance or are experiencing academic difficulty. Students may also be referred for academic counseling when the Dean's Office is alerted by an instructor to a student's repeated class absences or poor academic performance. We help students:

  • Organize a calendar/academic planner

  • Practice workable and efficient study and reading strategies

  • Utilize the appropriate University/College resources to assist them with personal, psychological and financial issues

  • Understand their progress in a course in a complete and constructive way

  • Avoid further class absences

The Dean's Office strongly encourages students of all class years and majors who are experiencing academic difficulty, or who simply want to hone their academic skills to schedule an academic counseling appointment with our academic counselor or assistant dean. Most students receive counseling weekly or bi-weekly, with periodic follow-up meetings as needed.
