Freshman and Incoming Transfer Students

All incoming freshmen and transfer students will have Amanda Tuscan, the Academic Success Coordinator, for their academic advisor.  Amanda will meet with you to discuss registration for classes for your first two semesters at Fairmont State, develop academic plans and goals, and assist with the transition into college. 

Upperclassmen

Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are all assigned a faculty advisor based on their program of study.  Faculty advisors are a great resource for you to talk about your professional goals.  They can assist you with picking out courses, guiding you in a career, or even writing a letter of recommendation.
