FCSON STUDENT SERVICES

FCSON is committed to providing those support services that will help each student to maximize his or her potential for successful completion of their academic program. Academic advisement is provided for every student and individual tutoring is available for students who request it. Felbry students are also provided opportunities to participate in social activities, service-learning projects, and community events/charities.

FCSON strives to assist students in their personal lives by providing resources to outside agencies, for students experiencing personal problems, financial and other concerns beyond the scope of FCSON support services. FCSON career services include career development, résumé preparation, and job placement assistance for graduates and for currently enrolled students seeking part-time employment.
