About Us

Our Mission

The mission of the MSU College Advising Corps is to provide guidance to low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students by helping them successfully navigate through the college enrollment process. Our college advisers support students in planning their college and scholarship searches, completing admissions and financial aid applications, and selecting the postsecondary institution that best matches their career objectives.
