Missouri State University Advising Mission Statement, Adopted December 2009
Academic advisors at Missouri State University provide academic and professional guidance as students develop meaningful educational plans in pursuit of their life goals. Advisors provide students with information about coursework, University policies and procedures, the Public Affairs mission, and career options and opportunities. They require student participation in the decision-making process, help students become lifelong learners, and encourage self-reliant problem solving through exploration of students’ own interests and values. Advisors support students as they seek the best possible education at Missouri State University.
How may an advisor help?
Advisors can assist students with:
- Exploring majors
- Selecting appropriate courses for degree progression and interest
- Making progress toward graduation
- Preparing students for graduate school or employment
If you’re a new or transfer student, advisors can help you find the right major and create a custom plan of study.
Our advisors have their own work loads, but also serve as backups in case you're unable to reach your assigned advisor within the college.
For pre-professional advisement, contact your current academic advisor or one of the advisors listed above.
