The Office of Academic Advocacy (OAA) is dedicated to serving undergraduate students in their pursuit of timely progression to graduation. We work individually with students in academic distress to review their options and collaborate with colleges and university departments to improve progression to graduation.

Undergraduate students identified as experiencing barriers to graduation may receive direct outreach from OAA to review their progress and to advise them towards graduation. Major advisors and university department staff can refer a student to OAA when they perceive an academic barrier to graduation for that student.

Tampa campus student inquiries and requests for appointments can be submitted via the Office of Academic Advocacy Student Intake Form. For comparable Academic Advocacy resources on the St. Petersburg campus, please visit COMPASS Advocacy. For comparable resources on the Sarasota-Manatee campus, please visit Student Support.

For referrals from Campus Partners, staff, personnel, friends or family of a student please visit the 'Student Inquiries/Referrals' tab on the left.
