Missouri S&T has partnered with the Missouri College Advising Corps (MCAC), which serves as a transition and retention program for 41 first-time, full-time freshmen students enrolled at S&T. These students are first-generation to college, minority or low-income advisees who have graduated from one of MCAC’s partner high schools across the state of Missouri and now attend S&T.
Brittany Schlup, a former college adviser in St. James, Mo., is now the transition and retention coach for S&T advisees. Her role is to help these freshmen successfully transition to campus life and adjust to the social, academic and financial barriers many first-time students face, while increasing retention rates and percentage of MCAC advisees persisting in college, specifically from the freshman to sophomore year.
MCAC would like to collaborate with student support services staff to ensure advisees are taking full advantage of resources on campus to avoid duplicate of services already provided.
