What We Do

Advising Systems is a department housed within Undergraduate Studies and is a part of Academic Affairs here at MSU Denver. We are an academic advising program that manages, in collaboration with our colleges, schools, and programs, multiple aspects of MSU Denver’s hybrid, decentralized undergraduate advising structure. We help ensure that consistency and communication exists across all of the academic advising teams. The units within Advising Systems foster connections across MSU Denver’s stakeholders committed to the academic support of student retention through graduation by way of leadership, collaboration, coordination, and implementation. Our area develops and implements advising strategy, training, and development. We also manage the Early Alert program, the academic standing policy, and the SSC Navigate system. Get to know us!
