Our mission is student success at Missouri State University.

Our goal is to ensure that students are retained, thrive and graduate from the University. This is done through the coordination of activities and delivery of student services focusing on academic support beginning with student transition into the university and persistence through graduation.

In short, we deliver programs that support student retention and completion while serving as a resource for the campus community.

First-Year Programs

First-Year Programs is committed to assisting new students in achieving a successful transition to Missouri State University’s community of scholars.

First-Gen Student Support

At Missouri State, we embrace the experience, skills and values that our first-generation college students bring to campus.


An important part of our mission is to coordinate with college staff, department heads, and faculty to support their retention and graduation efforts
