About Students First Office


The Students First Office (SFO) coordinates intervention processes across different academic and administrative units in order to determine the best possible success strategies for students facing academic, social, or financial setbacks. In collaboration with other support services across campus, SF serves as an academic information station for assisting students with academic advising, academic appeals, course overload requests, and graduation plan completion. SF advisors are also responsible for the advisement of all exploratory (undecided) students at UNCG.
