The Office of Student Success is focused on student retention, satisfaction, and success, making sure that students have the support they need to realize their fullest potential at Emerson.
Students may encounter obstacles or difficulties associated with college life—academic, financial, personal, interpersonal, or wellness—or simply seek greater connection and support. Emerson has fantastic resources designed to address the holistic needs of students. The Office of Student Success helps students to explore their options, navigate campus systems, and connect to services, supports, and each other. And sometimes, we just listen.
Here's how we can help you stay on track—or get back on track—towards your goals:
Come talk about whatever is on your mind. Whether you just want to stop by once to chat or are interested in ongoing support, we're here. Drop-ins welcome, no appointment necessary.
Former and current members of the armed services and their families may be eligible to utilize military educational benefits. We're the point of contact for students receiving veterans' benefits and for any current or former military personnel seeking support in navigating Emerson and VA resources—or just looking to meet up with other students who are vets. We aim to support our veterans' needs in accessing benefits and services and transitioning from a military to a collegiate environment.
Thinking about taking time off or leaving Emerson permanently? Challenges, circumstances and opportunities may present themselves and the Office of Student Success is here to assist you in exploring your options and navigating through those situations. A leave of absence is a temporary break in enrollment, while a withdrawal is the decision to leave Emerson permanently. Whether you've already made a decision or are just considering options, we'll talk through the choices and help you with the process should you decide to take time away.
If you are concerned about a member of the Emerson community who is exhibiting behavior that is disruptive, worrisome, or poses a potential threat to the safety and well-being of the campus community or any member of it, or who is struggling academically, financially or personally/emotionally, you can report a concern through the online form. Your concern will be routed to the appropriate office and/or team of trained staff depending on the nature of the concern.
