Office of Academic Support

The Office of Academic Support is dedicated to students' personal, social, and academic growth. The office consists of professional staff members who work as a team to help students gain the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to graduate in a timely manner. The staff works closely with students through advisement to develop academic plans which will aid students in the identification and achievement of their academic, career, and life goals. We support students in their academic pursuits and challenge them to strive for excellence. Our mission, put simply, is to transform lives.

The Office of Academic Support provides services for the following student populations:

  • Freshmen (Students who have 0-29 credit hours)
  • Undecided Majors
  • Students on Academic Probation


The mission of the Office of Academic Support is to serve the academic advisement and support needs of Chicago State University students through programming, teaching, and student engagement.


The Office of Academic Support strives to be a leader in the development of academic enrichment programs that promote academic success through the cultivation of supportive relationships with students.
