Advising relationships are a key factor in academic success. Each academic college has an advising center. When you start as a new student, you are often assigned to the advising center when you first declare a major at orientation. If you began as an undecided, you are assigned to the New Student & Family Programs office for advising.

For advising questions/concerns, please reach out to our office for assistance – we are available via phone (507-389-1650), email (advising@mnsu.edu), and socially-distanced visits (Memorial Library 111). If you need to contact a specific college advising office, please click HERE for their information. We look forward to assisting you!
