Center for Advising & Student Achievement

Browse Section

The Center for Advising & Student Achievement (CASA) provides all undergraduate students with a centralized, accessible program of effective academic advising and mentoring. We assist students from registration to graduation, expanding the traditional role of advising to include topics on life skills and transitions to college, academic planning, personal goals, and connecting career exploration to a personalized curriculum. Services provided by CASA include the following:

“CASA was created with the needs of the student in mind. Each day, we ask how we can provide the most student-centered, efficient and accurate services. Students let us know that they are getting the information they need to stay on track and graduate.”
Lela Mixon, Director of Center for Advising

Centralized Advising Services

Student advising for all academic departments is consolidated into a campus-wide center for advising and student achievement. Your file is available to all advisors, so you can walk in anytime and address immediate concerns, or contact a specific advisor to set up a meeting.

Academic and Career Exploration Program

Wondering what the best career path might be for you? CASA offers a short career aptitude test that measures you against more than 100 traits then uses that data to match you to more than 800 careers. After taking the test, you'll meet with our Academic Success Advisor or with a Career Navigator in the Professional Edge Center to go over the results and determine the next steps.
