Student Success Programming is funded by an initiative from Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, called Access, Opportunity, and Success. It is our goal to provide services to students who wish to enhance their college experience. Some of the programming has eligibility requirements; first generation, Pell Grant Eligible, Student of Color or otherwise underrepresented, and other programming is open to the whole student body. Feel free to contact the Student Success Coordinator with questions.

Our Success Participants can utilize free services which include:
·         Textbook loans
·         Laptop computer loans
·         Tuition waivers
·         Social and cultural activities
·         Tours to Minnesota four-year colleges
·         Referral services to other campus resources
·         Scholarship and financial aid application assistance
·         Workshops on academic and life skills aimed at familiarizing students with strategies for educational success

If you are not sure about whether or not you qualify for the program and free services or if you are interested in applying (it’s FREE) contact the Student Success Office.
