Student Success Center Advising

Our Mission

The Advising mission at MSSU is to promote student success by empowering students to achieve their academic, professional and personal goals, through high quality advising, dissemination of accurate and timely academic resources, information, and supportive mentorship.


Advising Services will foster intentional and purposeful engagement of major exploration, guide students to declare a major, encourage students to take advantage of the opportunities the university provides, and support all student populations.


Academic Success Coaches in the Student Success Center advise students who are pursuing a Bachelor of General Studies or Bachelor of Applied Science degree. We also advise students who haven’t yet declared a major and those who are non-degree seeking. To make an appointment with an Academic Success Coach, click on the link below.
