“When I came in for my orientation, I fell in love and decided that this was the school I wanted to go to. I ended up signing up and enrolling that same day. It’s very personable. Any issue that I’ve ever had as far as family or work, they’re always there to listen to me. Fremont gave me a lot of self-confidence and reminded me on a daily basis what I’m worth and what I’ve learned here – and that set me apart from my coworkers because of the skills that I’ve learned through my classes.

ii. 5-Star Support Team
A CULTURE OF CARE
Part of Fremont’s Culture of Care involves ensuring students have someone to turn to should they have a question or concern about any aspect of their education.

The Five-Star Advisor is a go-to person for questions and issues throughout a student’s studies at Fremont. Students can still meet with other advisors based on availability, however, we want to ensure students have a point person to communicate with at all times.
