Academic advisors support exploratory students as they go through the first-year process of choosing a major and transitioning into the appropriate college at FIU.
Exploratory students meet with an advisor during Freshman Orientation to develop an academic plan for their first two semesters. Advising for future semesters focuses on degree requirements and is tailored to students' academic performance and career goals.
