Advising and Student Services

The School of Education Student Services Office mission is to facilitate student success by providing quality services and support in the spirit of building a community of learners. The office is a resource for all School of Education students, providing program information as well as referrals to other campus resources and services. Primary responsibilities are to provide quality advising for undergraduates and to coordinate the processing of certification. The staff also assists with recruitment events, contact with prospective students, freshmen and transfer orientation, admissions to teacher education, School of Education scholarship materials, commencement and other student-centered activities.

Academic advisers are available to meet with undergraduate education majors and those seeking teacher certification. Academic advisers can be reached by contacting Student Services at (816) 235-2234.

Additionally, each student is assigned a faculty adviser. Faculty advisers are available for assistance in program and career planning. Graduate students are encouraged to contact their department within the first semester to connect with their faculty adviser.
