Communicating With Your Academic Advisor

Appointment (phone and in-person)

The optimal way to reach your advisor is through a scheduled appointment. You may reserve time to speak to your academic advisor to engage in academic planning and ask questions by scheduling an appointment online or by calling 386-754-4222.

Appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes.  Requests can be made for one hour sessions if you have more complex items to discuss with your advisor. Students scheduling phone appointments should have access to a computer with internet access. Evening appointments are conducted only by phone.

Email Advising

You can email your questions to your academic advisor and receive a response within 24-48 business hours. During peak periods (the first week of the term, the last week of the term, and the start of registration) responses may occur with 72 business hours. Email should be used as a supplement to phone or in-person advising, as many issues are complex and require thoughtful discussion. Emails must be sent from your FGC email account and should contain your full name, FGC ID, and phone number so that your advisor may assist you.
