Advisement

Are you looking to enroll in a degree or certificate program at Frontier Community College?  We would love to have you join us! Our Advisement department is here to help you every step of the way, from program and career exploration to graduation day and beyond.

Before enrolling in a degree or certificate program, students must first schedule an appointment with an academic advisor through FCC's Student Services office.  Advisement is an essential step in college education to make informed and educated decisions.  Advisors also ensure you are earning all necessary credits to apply towards your chosen degree or certificate program.

Most FCC students will be advised by Kara Blanton or Eric Resor.  To make an appointment with one of our advisors, please call 618-842-3711.
