Office of Student Success


The Office of Student Success (OSS) takes a holistic approach in supporting students in their individual transition to their university experience. Through a collaborative effort between students, Success Coaches and Peer Coaches, our mission is to help students develop the skills needed for succeeding in college and learn to utilize resources available in the campus community.

The OSS advises all Provisional Baccalaureate (PB) students. PB students fall just below the admission requirements to be accepted into a bachelor's degree program at CMU. Our office gives 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.

What do our students have to say about us?

"My experience with the Office of Student Success has been nothing but helpful in every way. They helped me to keep my schedule organized and really worked with what I wanted to get out of school here at Colorado Mesa. I would highly recommend this program. My coaches went out of their way to ensure that I had everything necessary to complete my first year of school here."

"The OSS has helped me become a successful college student-athlete and has improved my learning skills."

"My experience with the Office of Student Success was very satisfying. They are extremely reliable in organizing and navigating your way through college. Without them I would have been confused all throughout freshmen year."

"The PB Program has been a rewarding experience. I have received countless tools for success and the career exploration has helped me greatly in determining my major."

"The PB Program helped me a lot to grow as a better student and helped me get better grades."

"They taught me what I needed at CMU while most of my friends didn't know."

"It is nice to know you have someone you can talk to if you feel stressed or worried."

"I feel more prepared for future classes and challenges in college."


The Office of Student Success is collaborating with mentoring staff and in the process of transitioning into Student Success and Engagement.
