Academic Advising

First-Year Advising

All first-year students will be assigned a Professional Staff Advisor and a Faculty Advisor.  Professional Staff Advisors are located in the Student Success Center (2nd floor Student Center, across from Beaver Dam), POWER Center (2nd floor Student Center), Honors Program (Model Hall, Rm 208), and College of Business (Old Main, Rm 307). Professional Staff Advisors will review the results of the College Student Inventory, discuss resources available to students, review midterm deficiencies with students, and assist with schedule planning. Contact information for MSU's Professional Staff Advisors is listed below:

Faculty Advisors are assigned based on the student's intended major and will assist students with specific questions about the planned major(s)/minor(s), along with information about internship/career opportunities.

Advising is mandatory for all first-year students.
