Office of Student Success
Whether you're a first-year student or just a few credits shy of graduation, you may need some help as you navigate your path to graduation. We provide checklists, tools, and advice to guide you on your path to a college degree.
Internships are highly recommended in the college because they provide real-world experience. Opportunities for internships as unlimited as your own aspirations. Students who need help seeking an internship can contact the Career Center.
The Advising, Support & Planning (ASAP) Office offers academic advice and referral to students from all majors. It is staffed by full-time advisors, faculty members, and peers. We serve as the advisor for all Arts & Sciences Undeclared majors, Liberal Art majors, and all first and second year Business majors--as well as students in transition.
