CFPCA Advising: How can I get back on track?

College is a challenge—and this is no different for the Creative Warriors in the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts. Fortunately, lots of support exists to ensure your academic success. 

What if I'm already struggling?

You may be on academic probation with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 or you may be having a hard time in multiple courses in the same semester. Either way, your academic advisor and the CFPCA Success Coach can help.

Who is my Academic Advisor?

Each entering student in the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts is assigned an academic advisor. Your advisor will guide you to articulate your goals, create your individualized plan of work, and identify other opportunities and resources that will enhance your growth and success. Your advisor serves as your primary guide and resource as you progress through your major, and he or she may refer you to the CFPCA Success Coach for additional support. Find your academic advisor and schedule an appointment.
