FPTP focuses on the performance of its students, particularly in academics. Activities have been planned in order to help students improve their academic performance and skills. For instance, underachieving students (i.e. those who are under probation, having CPA < 2.0) will be sent to special programs that motivate and assist them to achieve better academic performance. Students benefit from the good practices in learning and effective studying, so that students will be able to cope with their studies and rise above overwhelming pressures of being a student. Qualified counsellors also provide guidance and try to assist students in solving their problems. The university’s Counselling Department (under the Student Development Center) plays its role in assisting the development of cognitive and emotional attributes among students. The department, with the help of the faculty has dealt with many cases, such as emotional, mental, personal, family and financial problems.
