Center for Academic Resources and Support

You can succeed, Lions! We believe in you!

The professional staff in FMU’s Center for Academic Resources and Support (CARS) helps all Lions learn the resources and strategies for success in college, especially students in the critical first year at FMU. CARS partners with students, faculty, and staff to help students create strong pathways and networks of support for their entire academic career at Florida Memorial University.

Specifically, CARS helps foster student success in the following areas:

  • Coordinating First-Year Experience [FYE] programming, including
    • Summer Bridge programs
    • New student onboarding and Orientation [NSO]
    • Placement testing (PERT) and initial college transcripts evaluation
    • FMU 101 and 102 freshmen seminar courses, which include weekly coursework and periodic All-Freshmen Forums (first year student seminars)
    • New Student Convocation
  • Academic advising and coaching in the first-year, including mapping a plan to graduate in four years (“Roar in 4!”)
  • ADA accessibility support
  • Tutoring (general education courses)
  • Academic referrals

We want you to “Roar in 4!”
