Student Success and Engagement houses advisors for all Compass Program students. Compass students fall just below the admission requirements to be accepted into a bachelor's degree program at CMU. This program gives Compass students the opportunity to still pursue a bachelor's degree while receiving additional advising and academic support. Our Coaches assist students with all aspects of their academic experience, including helping them successfully transition to college life, improve study skills, schedule courses, and identify majors and careers they are interested in pursuing.
