COUNSELING

All university students need help at one time or another. Distance education students face MANY new situations, such as starting courses, making life changing decisions, changing their routines, handling additional financial requirements, and building new relationships with students and instructors. The Family of Faith Christian University staff knows that it can be hard! That is why we have several people available to help you throughout and beyond your university career. We are committed to your success in life. Take time to seek counsel and find victory!

ACADEMIC ADVISING

Each time you register for a new semester of courses, you will review your academic plan with an adviser. The university is committed to insuring that the courses you need are available for completion within the proper time-frame. We all know that life situations arise,  necessitating a change of plans. Your adviser will be able to re-work your time line with you and make sure you stay on the road to completion.

FINANCIAL SERVICES

The Financial Aid Director on campus can assist you with questions, documentation, options, and general counsel.  Please call or stop by the Financial Aid office if you have any questions. You can also view the Financial Aid page on this website to help in answering some of your questions.

FINDING FRIENDSHIP

One of the best things about university is building relationships with different people. Often, it is the camaraderie of the university classroom that encourages people to continue and to finish their studies. It would be a tragedy if a student were to complete a distance education program and never get to know his or her fellow students or supporting faculty members. We encourage you to take advantage of chapel services, attend semi-annual Leadership Conferences, join the online university community through the university website, and even visit campus as you are able.

PERSONAL ASSISTANCE

If your needs are more personal in nature, be assured that you can find counsel and prayerful support at Family of Faith Christian University. If you have pastoral and/or parental support, we encourage you to share with them your victories, your concerns and your frustrations so they can keep praying for you. But, also remember that the FFCU staff members want you to succeed in every area of your life. Please contact us!
