Freshman Advising

The personnel in the Academic Success Center coordinate the advising of freshmen. All entering freshmen and transfer students, with fewer than 15 hours credit, will be enrolled in University Foundations. The teacher for that course then becomes the student's adviser until the student declares a major. The freshman adviser helps the student through the course selection process, monitors grades and class attendance, and encourages academic progress. 


Placement Testing 

Some students may choose to complete an additional placement test as a part of the freshman registration process. Students who score less than 18 on the English portion of the ACT or less than 21 on the Math portion may complete the ACCUPLACER.

The ACCUPLACER Exam is administered by appointment. Please contact the Testing Center Coordinator, Connie Pritchard at cpritchard@fhu.edu or 731-989-6061 to schedule an appointment.  

The scores on the ACT and the ACCUPLACER exam are used to evaluate student placement into FHU's developmental studies program or to try and test out of the developmental studies.
