Pre-Admission Advising (PAA)
PAA is available to anyone interested in a program at FGC. An advisor will review the program requirements and guide you through the steps to enrolling at FGC. PAA is not required and does not take the place of the Initial Advising appointment.
Initial Advising (After Acceptance to FGC)
The first step in the registration process is your initial advising appointment. During the initial advising appointment your advisor will assist you with course selection and discuss testing requirements (if applicable). If you are a First-time in College Student (FTIC), your advisor will help you register for a New Student Orientation (NSO) session.
First-term advising is one of the most important advising sessions for students. During your first semester, you will work with your advisor to start your Personal Education Plan (PEP). Your PEP is designed just for you and will plan the courses you will take each semester through degree completion.
See your advisor each semester for follow-up advising. It is critical to stay in contact with your advisor to make sure you are on-track to graduate and taking the correct courses to transfer. Transfer Advising When you have decided which universities you would like to transfer to after completing your degree at FGC, your advisor will help you review the transfer requirements for each institution. Your advisor can also help you with the application process for the universities.
