Success Navigators

Success Navigators are available on campus and online to help incoming students transition into college.

We understand that starting college can be overwhelming, so we’re here to provide an extra layer of support. Our team is a great point of contact for first-year students who have questions or concerns. We aim to help students navigate the M State system so they can be successful. First-year students can expect our team to reach out throughout the year to check in.

Students can always reach out to us at success-navigators@minnesota.edu
or schedule an appointment at https://bookings.minnesota.edu/success-navigators.
