Student Transitions

The Student Transitions office works with both new and continuing students to promote a smooth transition to collegiate life and a successful academic experience. The Director of Student Transitions also coordinates the campus-wide use of MAP-Works to connect students to campus resources and services that will enable them to thrive.

Student success is a collaborative effort involving professors, academic offices, student development professionals, and many support services. We are happy to be the hub of that collaboration!

If you don’t know where to find an answer or how to get help, come see us. We can connect you.
