Faculty submitting degrees and transcripts from foreign universities must submit an original evaluation of those transcripts by a nationally recognized evaluation institution.

The earlier the intervention, the more impact it can have on the student’s overall success.

How does Early Alert work? Faculty are asked to identify students who have demonstrated poor academic progress due to excessive absences, low test/quiz scores, incomplete/missing assignments, weak skills, classroom behaviors, or personal issues. The faculty member is encouraged to initiate contact with student at the first sign of academic difficulty.

If faculty intervention is unsuccessful, the faculty member should contact our advising center and provide the necessary information about the student at risk.

The Advising Center will contact the student at risk via e-mails, phone calls, and letters to advise them of the referring faculty’s concerns and discuss possible strategies to improve class performance. The student is also encouraged to contact the faculty member regarding the referral.

A follow-up session is scheduled with the student by the counselor to discuss student progress or difficulties that may have arisen in carrying out the “action plan.”

An Educational Philosophy

As stated in the University Catalog:

Florida National University devotes itself to the cause of education, aware that: (1)
preparing individuals for personal and professional success is laying the basis for stable and prosperous societies; (2) there is much to gain from the impetus, creativity, and sheer desire to belong in the many new arrivals who are a vital part of the rapid growth of Southern Florida. Florida National University would like to be a part of this process of incorporation of so many diverse elements into the many opportunities this prosperous nation has to offer; as well as to receive the enrichment which these diverse elements bring to the American milieu in order to continue the unique position the United States has amongst the nations of the world.
