Much research has been conducted to identify factors that increase students' chances of success and retention. Two factors that significantly increase their success include:
- Participating in quality orientation and transition programs.
- Having informed family members who are involved in their student's education.
Please consider making a financial donation to New Student and Family Programs. Your gift helps support important programs that contribute to the success of our new Missouri State Bears, directly through programs like Student Orientation, Advisement & Registration (SOAR) and the Ursa Experience and indirectly through Parent and Family Programs.
No matter how large or small, your contribution is a pledge to join us in supporting student success. On behalf of the Missouri State University community, thanks in advance for your generosity!
