MENUMENU

Student Success Navigation


Northwest Florida State College has Student Success Navigators at each of our seven locations. Each Navigator is equipped to assist students with their long term educational goals. Upon admission to the college, all new degree seeking students are required to speak with an advisor to become acclimated with resources, understand entrance procedures such as placement testing, and determine an academic path. Although walk-ins are permitted at several locations, appointments should be made to receive prompt service when desiring to speak with an advisor.

To contact Student Success Navigation, please call (850) 678-5111 or email [email protected].
