Exploratory Academic Advising Center

Move In


The mission of the Fairmont State University Exploratory Academic Advising Center is to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with their life goals.

Fulfilling Our Mission

We fulfill our mission by:

  • Empowering students so that they are able to overcome any obstacles to attain their personal academic goals
  • Providing accurate information to students for completion of degree requirements and academic standards in a timely and efficient manner
  • Serving as a connector for the student to the myriad of services and support systems available


The purpose of the Exploratory Academic Advising Center is to provide undecided students with comprehensive advising as well as interpersonal professional support. A concerted effort is made to address any academic concerns that may impede the student’s successful completion of degree requirements and to assist the student in the selection of an academic program.

Those students who are not ready to select a major upon entrance will be assigned to the Exploratory Advising Center. Students should discuss problems relating to degree requirements, registration, and withdrawals from class or college with their advisors.
