Student Success Center
We work with students to help define, clarify, and achieve academic, personal, and professional goals. We seek to help develop dynamic learning strategies to enhance academic success. We want to enable students to make informed choices regarding academic programs and career opportunities. Finally, we want to help students make academic and career transitions to assist in completing a certificate or diploma program.

Student Success Center staff actively promote student success and selection of career pathways by:
- Providing additional advising to at-risk students, supporting academic advisors

We are dedicated to improving student persistence and degree/certificate completion. All VU students—current, past, and future—are welcome to take advantage of our offerings. Our primary focus is to serve those students who enter VU with the greatest risk of not completing: students who may be undecided about a career path or major and those who need significant remediation.
