The Advising Division of CASA stands in accordance with FMU’s mission to promote student learning and success, and works to positively impact student persistence and retention.
CASA Advising works with first-year students to ease the transition from high school to university life. A staff of friendly and knowledgeable advisors work closely with first-year students to provide assistance in choosing majors, finding career paths, selecting courses, and exercising habits that lead to academic success. The advising team is dedicated to supporting students and connecting them to resources that will help them be successful during their academic careers at FMU.
CASA advisors also provide counseling for probationary students and answer general questions for students and faculty about course registration, majors and minors, study skills, time management, career guidance, and more.
