Welcome to The College of the Florida Keys Advising Services! Your advisor is here to assist you in each step toward your academic success.

CFK's Academic Advising Services help students plan for success during their time at CFK and beyond.  Students are encouraged to stay in communication with their academic/program advisor to benefit from services available to nurture their progress.  Academic advisors help their students create a personalized educational plan that best meets their goals—including degree and course selections, internship options, career preparation, and plans for subsequent degrees.
