Advising and Resources
Gator Engineering at State College of Florida students will have a Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering (HWCOE) academic advisor as well as a State College of Florida (SCF) academic advisor dedicated to their needs. The SCF academic advisor will be housed in the Gator Den on the SCF Venice campus and the HWCOE academic advisor will have a presence on both the University of Florida (UF) and SCF campuses. Once students are admitted to UF they will also have access to the HWCOE Center for Student Excellence which is home to award winning first year advisors and career coaches for the college. All of these advisors will play a large role in offering academic guidance. They are knowledgeable, highly trained, and serve as an important resource for finding internships and leadership opportunities.
Students in the Gator Engineering at State College of Florida program have access to UF student resources, and are encouraged to participate in activities linking them to prospective employers and internship opportunities, research opportunities at UF, and study abroad opportunities.
