Center for Student Success and Engagement

Your success is our top priority.

The Center for Student Success and Engagement (CSSE) offers an integrated array of services and resources to assist your transition to college. We believe every student has the ability to excel academically and be successful, goals supported by a range of peer-advisory programs. Our “MCLA in 4” provides Core Curriculum and major program pathways so that you can complete your degree in four years.  We want students to be engaged learners and take advantage of internships, study abroad, service learning, undergraduate research, and other individualized academic experiences. The college-wide Honors Program is designed for students interested in further intellectual engagement. Our Career Services office identifies employment opportunities and offers career exploration, assisting you with resume building and preparation for life after college.
