In the Office of Student Success (OSS), we value the unique opportunity we have, to build a close relationship with our School of Education students. These relationships help to ensure that our students are on the right path toward graduation.

Our knowledgeable and experienced OSS staff support the success of all our students by ensuring that they develop a thorough knowledge of degree and licensure requirements for all School of Education and Secondary majors, to include licensure-only programs.

During the academic year, walk-ins are available on Tuesdays from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm and Thursdays from 9:00 am and 12:00 pm. Appointments with staff can be set up through email, phone, or Starfish.
