Contacting the Academic Dean’s office

If you are referred to “the Dean’s office,” you should first contact the Academic Dean’s office, also referred to as the Office of Academic Affairs, which oversees academic services for students in our college.

Throughout the semester, the COSSPP Academic Affairs office will be available in person or virtually.

  • In person, visit 101 Bellamy Building, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday.
  • By email, contact coss-academic-dean@fsu.edu.
  • By phone, call (850) 644-5470. If you are forwarded to voicemail, leave a message with your name and FSUID or EMPLID along with the reason for your call.

Our office works with students on a variety of issues including overload requests, assisting with course drops, medical/mental health course drops and withdrawals, transient courses, academic dismissal/reinstatement, and more.

Academic Advising, May 9-13 (during drop/add)

All COSSPP academic advising May 9-13 will be conducted via a moderated, open Zoom call.

Summer A/C drop/add opens at 12:01 am EDT on Saturday, May 7 and closes at 11:59 pm EDT on Thursday, May 12.

It is best to email the last advisor with whom you spoke, not several. Emailing more than one advisor requires they verify if anyone else has already responded to you. Remember to allow 2-3 business days for an email response from any individual staff member during this busy time of year.

Zoom instructions for COSSPP advising May 9-13:

  1. Zoom link: https://fsu.zoom.us/j/96027397279
  1. Advising sign-in hours: 8:30am – 11:30am and 1:00pm – 3:30pm.
    Advising sessions may be limited to 15 minutes due to student volume.
  2. You will join the call in the waiting area and will be added as there is availability. Students will not be added to the call outside of listed sign-in hours.
  3. There may be significant waiting time depending on how many students have entered the call.

Before you meet with an advisor:

  1. Identify classes that interest you. Register for classes before meeting with an advisor when possible.
  2. Review your Academic Requirements Report (ARR). Look for unmet requirement areas listed in red as unsatisfied.
  3. Summer 2022 Academic Calendar: Mark important semester dates/deadlines, particularly the 7th and 12th week deadlines.
  4. Resolve any holds on your FSU account (health insurance, student financial agreement, financial, etc.) – advisors cannot lift holds placed by other offices.
  5. Check on the status of your Financial Aid. Check for any outstanding requirements or holds such as Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), student loans, etc.

CHECK your schedule before the drop/add deadline date. You will be FEE LIABLE for any classes on your schedule after drop/add has ended.
