The College of Education Office of Student Services advocates for student success by supporting and encouraging individuals to be engaged members of a diverse community and empowering them to reach their goals within an inclusive and collaborative environment.

We collaborate with programs and departments both within the college and across the university to provide students with accurate, friendly, and professional service.

In order to provide all of our students with an excellent college experience, we offer services in:

COE Connection

Delivered every Monday, the COE Connection is a weekly e-newsletter for students featuring activities, programs, and announcements. Both undergraduate and graduate students are automatically subscribed to the newsletter, with each receiving a version of the newsletter most relevant to their experience at the College.
