Guidance Advisors

Guidance Advisors

Who We Are

Guidance Advisors are FIC alumni who provide personal and academic support to FIC students. They offer a unique perspective based on their experience as both former FIC students and current SFU students. These students enjoyed their time at FIC and want to help as many students as they can succeed and transfer to SFU!

What We Do

Guidance Advisors help support the Student Advisors by answering day-to-day questions and concerns as well as support students transitioning into university life. Guidance Advisors receive training on everything from FIC’s programs and their requirements, to volunteer opportunities, medical insurance, and attendance. They can also provide information about transferring to SFU based on their own personal experiences.
