Center for Student Success: Support Services
The Center for Student Success (CSS) serves students with a full variety of support services. We have worked hard to continue to deliver robust and high quality academic and career support remotely. Due to the pandemic, we will not be taking walk-ins; however, it will be possible to schedule face-to-face appointments in advance as social distancing constraints allow. Read on for an overview of how to connect with our various service areas.
Career Services assists students and alumni with career advising, job search strategies, resume and interview preparation, and graduate school planning as well as providing online workshops and seminars. Our Hawks Career Link online job portal lists full- and part-time jobs and internship opportunities.
Experiential Education allow students to connect what they have learned in the classroom to external experiences, such as internships (paid or unpaid), research opportunities, service learning projects, or study abroad.
Cooperative Education provides students with the knowledge and understanding necessary to make sound career decisions through participation in career-related and academically relevant work experiences.
First Year Advising
First year students may schedule appointments with First Year Faculty Advisors, including advising administrators, and receive a high level of service and advising virtually through online services. Please visit our website for detailed information, including virtual walk-in advising assistance for first year students during drop/add.
Transfer and Undeclared Services
The Office of Transfer and Undeclared Services will offer high impact advising and support services to our students in a virtual environment this semester. Virtual walk-in advising is available through Accudemia. Please visit our website for detailed instructions on using virtual walk-in advising. In the circumstance that students are not able to take advantage of the wide array of remote advising options, we will work with them to investigate other options.
First to Fly / First Generation Student Support
First to Fly: First Generation at Monmouth supports students who identify as the first member of their family to attend college or whose parents/guardians may have some college but have not attained a U.S. baccalaureate degree. First to Fly is a campus-wide initiative designed to offer academic, social, and personal support for students who identify as a first-generation.
Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF)
We support students through extensive outreach as well as virtual 1:1 meetings and workshops. Students can schedule appointments with their counselors online to limit office density and needs a few more words for format.
Monmouth University’s pre-law advisor is available to meet with students to discuss expectations about legal careers and address their specific questions about applying to law school.
Advising is available to students interested in further study at health professional schools including medical, dental, podiatry, physician assistant, physical therapy, chiropractic, veterinary, public health, occupational therapy and other allied health fields.
Tutoring and Academic Support
Virtual appointments with Peer Tutors and Academic Coaches allow us to work closely with students without violating social distancing guidelines while receiving the same high level of individualized service. College Success skills workshops will be delivered virtually, either live or prerecorded via Zoom.
Writing Services will be made available to students both synchronously (via live, one-on-one Zoom sessions) and asynchronously (via our eCampus intranet, in which students can submit papers electronically for our writing assistants to review and then await the assistant’s written feedback).
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is delivered remotely unless the nature of the course requires in-person sessions (i.e. hands-on science or clinical lab courses). SI Leaders connect with classes directly to schedule sessions, send weekly reminders, and provide support. Professors also distribute information about SI benefits to their classes.
