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.

Services Offered by the Academic Advisement Center to the Campus Community:
  • Provide one-on-one academic advisement for all new, continuing and transfer students with undeclared/exploratory majors.
  • Make available programs, such as the Majors Fair, to benefit students as they explore majors.
  • Supply outreach activities such as presentations for SOAR, GEP 101 classes, and workshops for conditionally admitted students.
  • Implement the Master Advisor Program.
