Group Advising Sessions



MMM 9.14.20.jpeg

The Office of Student Success (OSS) facilitates group advising sessions. OSS prides itself on fostering transformative learning experiences for diverse learners by providing holistic advising across curricular and co-curricular needs. OSS advisors deliver clear pathways and provide knowledge to students regarding degree planning, course selection and academic policies. In addition, they help students develop skills necessary to address challenges related to curricular and co-curricular requirements. 

Students in the School of Education will have the opportunity to receive support in a virtual group setting. Topics such as fieldwork requirements, pathway to credentialing, elective options and preparing for professional conferences promote student success by delivering accurate and useful information.
