Concierge Academic Advising #
Each student is assigned a concierge team member who will provide the information necessary to allow the student to make informed decisions in determining their academic plan and scheduling their coursework. The Concierge will make suggestions and recommendations on how a student may achieve their academic goals; however, it is the ultimate responsibility of the student to meet the requirements of the program.
Each semester, students should be diligent about checking courses they register for against their required programs of study to assure they remain on target for graduation.
As the world of culinary arts continues to evolve, so do the standards and competencies of the ACFEF apprenticeship program. Note that the standards may be amended during the student’s period of apprenticeship which may add or remove specific requirements for completion.
