Ways to avoid a long wait as a walk-in:

  • Come in early in the morning
  • Worst times to stop by for walk-in advising? Between 12:00pm (noon) and 2:00pm. 

*This schedule subject to change due to new student orientation. 

Please note that we will stop seeing students at 5:00pm. We will ensure that all students who have "signed in" are seen before we leave for the day. To be able to do this during very busy periods, we may close the sign-in sheet early. 

The Success Network powered by Starfish Solutions is an online communication system that connects you, the student, to a network of support. Advisors, faculty, tutors, and many different support staff make up your "Success Network" and will provide as well as connect you to the resources needed to be successful at FAU.
You can access and log into the system by using the links below. Your Success Network is also located in MyFAU (click the Success Network Tab) and Blackboard (click the Success Network Tab).

You can make an appointment with the advisor who approved your OARS form but feel free to make an appointment with any advisor.

  • MUSIC MAJORS: Please meet with an advisor from the Music Department
  • PRE-PROFESSIONAL SCIENCE MAJORS:  Due to some restrictions in the SUCCESS NETWORK, students seeking pre-health advising must have a pre-health designation added to their records (pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, pre-pharmacy, pre-PA, other non-nursing majors).

    Please submit the pre-health declaration form PRIOR TO September 5, 2014.  If you have already completed the form you will need to wait at least 1 to 2 weeks for processing.  

Glad you asked. Our office is open Monday through Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. We are located on the Boca Raton campus in the Student Support Services building on the second floor in room 201. Our telephone number is (561) 297-3064 or you can send a question via e-mail to advisingservices@fau.edu.
