It takes a village!
Advising at UMN Crookston is supported by several offices. Advisers are encouraged to send students to these offices to provide help when the adviser cannot.
Career Services can provide students with assistance in selecting a major, discovering interests and aptitudes, résumé building, and job-seeking strategies.
Disability Resources Center
Disability Resource Center can assist students with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and other situations that may impair learning. Many students come to UMC with undiagnosed learning disabilities, and often it is the academic adviser who notices that the student may be struggling with an issue that can be helped. Referrals from advisers are always welcome.
The Registrar's Office can provide valuable assistance with academic policies, registration issues, probation/suspension, and forms.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
The Financial Aid & Scholarships can assist students and advisers with eligibility questions, Satisfactory Academic Progress appeals, and entrance/exit loan counseling. Prior to changing a class schedule, students should consult with the Financial Aid office to avoid hindering their eligibility for aid by inadvertently dropping too many credits, repeating classes that they have already passed, etc.
Student Success Center
The Student Success Center (SSC) can provide academic assistance, tutoring, and study help for students. The Writing Center, located within the SSC, provides help with essays, research papers, lab reports, résumés, personal statements, and virtually any other form of writing. Students can make appointments with tutors and writing consultants through the SSC’s website.
Residential Life supports students in their living/learning environment in the residence halls. Often the student’s Community Adviser is one of the closest people to the student, and can bring insight into student concerns and issues.
