The Center for Academic Excellence
works to equip students for academic success.

The Center for Academic Excellence, previously known as the academic advising office, works to equip students for academic success. Members of the academic advising team can help students decide on a major, master good study habits, choose a career path or prepare for graduate school. They also offer a number of academic services, such as a mentoring program, Supplemental Instruction and academic labs, to help all students reach their full academic potential.

Mentoring Program

This program is unique to Florida College and offers incoming students who need help transitioning to college life and current students who are struggling academically an opportunity to meet on a regular basis with an advisor dedicated to helping them achieve their goals. The program ensures that students who need extra help don’t feel like failures but receive the support they need to succeed.

Supplemental Instruction

The SI program began as a function of Florida College’s first quality enhancement plan and serves as a tool to help lower-division students succeed in their entry-level courses. Supplemental Instruction sessions are coordinated by student leaders who have already taken and received a high grade in a given course. Students in a course with Supplemental Instruction are encouraged to attend the sessions regularly.

Academic Labs

Labs provide extra help to students who are studying math, communication, writing, music and Bible. A high-achieving student is available a couple times each week to meet with students who need assistance with an assignment or project in one of these subject areas.
