SOS works to align, enhance and advocate for academic support services and college access initiatives across the university and within the broader St. Louis region. We provide a comprehensive support model to implement strategies and practices that promote student achievement.

The SOS unit includes Student Enrichment and Achievement, which provides targeted support and workshops for students facing academic challenges. An experienced team of success coaches partner with you to create a culture of enrichment and achievement through a commitment to holistic and individualized support. SEA also provides oversight for the early alert system, which initiates electronic communications when a student experiences a success barrier in a course in partnership with faculty and other support service departments.

The University Tutoring Center provides students with a variety of learning tools. When you utilize these services, you'll be equipped with effective study skills, strategies and resources that enhance your overall learning experience and empower you to achieve student success. UTC provides individualized tutorial services, group tutorial sessions, alumni tutoring, online tutorial support and study hall, all intentionally designed to promote academic success. 

University Student Support provides comprehensive support services for all students, which includes academic coaching, professional development, mentoring and Commit to Success workshops to engage you in a variety of pertinent topics relevant to UMSL students.

UMSL’s TRIO Student Support Services program seeks to facilitate the transfer of participants from two-year to four-year institutions while increase the college retention and graduation rates of student participants.
