The College Transfer Advising Program at Forsyth Tech is located within the Student Success Center in Suite 2414 of the Robert L. Strickland Center. Our team is composed of academic advisors and counselors, dedicated to mentoring, inspiring, and preparing our students to complete transferrable college credits. Our College Transfer Advising team is hosts events such as the College Transfer Fair, College Visits, On-Campus Admissions Days and more to provide students with the opportunities needed to complete successfully their coursework at Forsyth Tech and to transfer to the four-year school of their choice.

Don’t miss out on meeting with your advisor during our Advising Months (March and October) to make sure you’re on the right track, plan your remaining semester at Forsyth Tech, and more!


How do I find my advisor?

Students can see who their assigned advisor is in their Starfish account. Log in to Blackboard, click on Starfish in the left menu, and click on My Success Network. The email address and phone number should be listed under their name.

Your academic advisor is a faculty member who teaches in your chosen curricula: (Example: if you are in the Nursing Program, your academic advisor may be a faculty member who teaches in the Nursing program) OR a Student Success Center advisor who works with students enrolled in our college transfer or pre-health programs. Advisors are available to help you plan your course of study while enrolled at Forsyth Tech.

When is Advising Month?

Every March and October is Advising Month! This is a time for you to meet with your advisor about your next semester courses and academic plans and to register for the coming semester!

Registration times/dates are sent to your Techlink email account from the records office. All current students are expected to register online through

If you need to speak to your advisor outside of Advising Month, feel free to schedule an appointment through Starfish or at the Student Success Center, located in Suite 2414 of the Robert L. Strickland Center.
