Edith Duvier, Director/Advisor

Advisors: Deborah Allen, Angela Clark, Gina Mattingly

The Student Success Center serves undergraduate students who are in General Curriculum, General Health Studies, and General Pre-Law. The Center is especially committed to  helping students succeed in general education courses and basic major requirements, choose appropriate degree programs and career paths, and helping solve problems that  could cause students to be unsuccessful academically.

General Curriculum (GECU) is for students uncertain about their career goals or not quite ready to declare a major. The goal of the program is to help students make an  educated decision in choosing their major or future career. They will receive one-on-one advising and guidance, assistance in career exploration, and academic support while  selecting their majors and future careers. Students may stay in GECU until they earn 60 semester hours. However, a student may transfer to an academic department upon the  request of the student and consent of his or her advisor.

General Health Studies (GHS) is for students who plan to enter nursing or one of the medical professions. Students will receive career counseling and begin fulfilling their general education requirements while preparing for their chosen career.

General Pre-Law (GEPL) is for students who are planning on entering law school after graduation from the University. Advisors aid students in selecting a major that will prepare  them for their future careers. Students are also encouraged to join the Pre-Law Club where they will meet other students with similar interests in law.
