Frequently Asked Questions: Appointments and Check-In

How do I schedule an appointment?

Academic Success has an appointment scheduler online. From the FCSL main page, go to Academics → click “Academic Success” in the column on the left → scroll down the Academic Success page → and click the blue hyperlink “Please schedule appointments.”

How do I choose a counselor?

Please schedule appointments with the Academic Success Counselor who teaches your course if the meeting concerns course work. If the meeting does not concern course work, or you do not have a current course with an Academic Success Counselor, then you may schedule an appointment with your preferred counselor. If you have no preference, you will be assigned to a counselor based on counselor availability and your need.

Why do I have to check-in?

Check-in is simply a way to alert the counselor that the person with the next appointment has arrived. Although an Academic Success Counselor’s titled role is to assist students with academic matters, the Academic Success department is aware that the issues that affect academics sometimes surpass books and often involve other life matters. The Academic Success team appreciates your patience as we try to ensure the confidentiality of all of our students, including you.
