All students at the university are assigned a faculty advisor who will assist with course selection, vocational council and direction, and mentoring. Faculty advisors are assigned based on the student's program of study and interests. Some programs allow students to select their faculty advisor if there are multiple faculty who perform this role within the academic department. For more information contact the registrar's office.
In addition to faculty advising, students are encouraged to use the resources provided through MyGFU such as the Academic Requirements degree audit, course plans for their program, and other scheduling assistance. Career and Academic Planning Coaches (CAP Coaches) in the IDEA Center are also available to assist with the process and help students make appropriate progress through their program at the university.
