Student Services

STUDENTS: If you are experiencing symptoms, please refer to these flowcharts for next steps.

Overview

We will continue to provide all the student services and academic support services students are wanting and needing to be a successful Yellowjacket. The Division of Student Success and our seven departments within it will be standing by to proactively and reactively help students achieve your goals. 

Much of our services will continue to be offered virtually to support students safely, but some services will be available in limited times and spaces. Please note that these offerings can shift and change based on local, university and CDC developments and changes.

Services that will continue to be offered to you, but in virtual formats* will be (but not limited to):

  • TRIO programs meetings, coaching and programming
  • Disability Support Services accommodations and meetings
  • Some supplemental instruction
  • International student support

*students may be able to request in-person meetings as appropriate and allowable based on safety precautions designated by the university. Please note that these services may not be able to take place in private offices due to physical distancing requirements.

We will be providing limited in-person services to students based on pre-scheduled appointment and need, such as (but not limited to):

  • Bridge program IDS 095 Collegiate Study Skills course

Please contact us if you have any questions.
