Student Success and Advising Services

Welcome to the College of Education

One of our goals is to promote successful transitions for students who wish to pursue early childhood, elementary, middle school, and special education majors within the College of Education. Academic advising is the best way to select and enroll in the appropriate courses for a chosen major. In addition, students are introduced to leadership opportunities through University-wide creative and social activities.  We encourage a sense of community and ownership for students through early referral to faculty advisors, departmental and professional organizations and MTSU academic support services.
