The mission of the Fairmont State University Academic Advising Center is to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with their life goals.
We fulfill our mission by:
The purpose of the Academic Advising Center is to provide undeclared 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.
Students are assigned academic advisors when they first enroll at Fairmont State University. Those students who are not ready to select a major upon entrance will be assigned to the Academic Advising Center. Students wanting to change their major fields of study must contact the Registrar’s Office; students will then be referred to their major departments to have a new advisor assigned. Students should discuss problems relating to degree requirements, registration, and withdrawals from class or college with their advisors.
