A strong support system
The Center for Student Success seeks to equip students for independent, effective, and life-long learning through programs and services tailored to assist them in achieving their personal and educational goals.
This office was first established in 1991 as a program funded by a grant from the Teagle Foundation. Since that time, the staff and services have been expanded to better serve the growing needs of MVNU students. There are no additional fees for any of the services provided by the Center for Student Success.

Tutors are student employees who are trained to teach students individually toward the goal of mastering content and developing transferable study skills. Traditional students make appointments with tutors here. Students in the nontraditional and graduate programs (GPS) must follow the procedures for may access tutoring assistance by following the instructions here.
Supplemental Instruction is a program that provides academic enrichment to traditional students who are enrolled in selected courses.
