Student Services

The mission of Student Services is to support each student throughout their academic career from the point of enrollment to the moment of graduation. We work closely with each student to ensure they reach their academic goals and will be successful upon completion of their program. Our team strives to foster the development of all students by providing support services, academic advising, and student life activities. 

Our main goal is to promote educational excellence and a global perspective that will help students achieve their personal and academic aspirations. In order to accomplish this goal, we are here to guide students through their academic journey and connect them to our resources. To ensure your continued success, our student advisors will check in with you throughout your courses, support and celebrate your successes, partner with you in developing your personalized educational plan, and will assist you in any way possible!
