Florida Association for Student Success is a state chapter of the National Organization for Student Success. We are an organization that represents and supports educators, students, student support specialists, and administrators dedicated to promoting student success for all students, including the underprepared and underrepresented. We advocate for holistic solutions to facilitate student success and college completion.

Individual membership in the FASS is open to administrators and teachers who are interested in and support developmental education programs and goals. At present, the association has members in Florida community colleges, private post-secondary institutions, governmental agencies, and other professional organizations involved in delivering college preparatory instruction.
