Academic Advising


At Missouri Southern State University, academic advising provides students with the opportunity to build a relationship with their advisor for the purpose of gaining assistance in planning their educational career, in learning the skills needed for academic success, and in learning how to access the variety of resources and services available to them on the Missouri Southern campus.

Academic advising is an extension of teaching. Academic advising is a collaborative educational process whereby students and their Advisors are partners in meeting the essential learning outcomes, facilitating student academic success, and outlining the steps for achievement of the students' personal, academic, and career goals. This advisor/student partnership requires participation and involvement of both the advisor and the student as it is built over the student's entire educational experience at Missouri Southern. Both the student and the advisor have clear responsibilities for ensuring the advising partnership is successful.
