Meet with a Bridge Advisor—It’s What You Do!

Bridge Advisors help you become transfer ready, which means choosing a major early, completing prerequisites in your major, meeting GPA and other requirements for Limited Access Programs, and earning the AA degree in 3 years or less. Being transfer ready means that you can enroll in upper-division courses as soon as you transfer to FIU.

Bridge Advisors are knowledgeable about FIU majors, minors, transfer scholarships, transition resources, and much more. They also work closely with college advisors, who offer guidance on your academic/educational plan, career exploration, and registration.

Connect4Success students are required to meet with an FIU Bridge Advisor at least once each term.
Bridge Advisors are available to meet with students at Miami Dade College, Broward College, and Palm Beach State College, or virtually via Zoom. Schedule an appointment to secure availability.
