The Graduation Planning & Strategies Office supports students who earned an Associate of Arts (AA) degree while in high school in the following ways:
- Facilitate connection by meeting with students in their first term
- Audit transcripts to ensure AA degrees are posted
- Provide regular social opportunities for first year students
- Facilitate a high school AA peer mentorship program for first year students
- Connect with students at any time throughout their academic career
High School AA Mentorship Program
Transitioning to FSU with 60+ credits already earned through dual enrollment in high school can be simultaneously exciting and challenging. The high school AA mentorship program enables first year students to connect with upperclassmen who have also earned an AA degree in high school.
The goals of this program are to help new students:
- Feel at home at FSU
- Increase major and career confidence
- Promote personal and academic growth
Not only does the high school AA mentorship program serve to promote development in new high school AA students, this program enables student mentors to:
- Gain leadership skills
- Share their experience and expertise with mentees
If you are interested in having a peer mentor in your first year at FSU or in potentially serving as a high school AA student mentor to new students, please contact Renee Dyehouse.
