Student Success Center


Students are successful at Northeast Mississippi Community College as they recognize their potential, overcome challenges, and achieve their educational and career goals. The Student Success Center helps students as they build relationships, support students, and empower them to achieve their goals. This shared mission is accomplished through the Three Pillars of Student Success: Academic Advising, Success Coaching, Counseling.  


Through academic advising, the College community motivates students to create a path through which educational, career, personal, and social goals may be achieved beyond their own aspirations. Academic advisors act as navigators on the student’s path to reach his or her goals. Advising includes the essential activity of schedule making but is not limited to schedule making. Academic advising is a teaching, learning, and empowering process wherein advisors guide and students decide.


Success Coaches support, encourage, and empower students to recognize their potential, overcome challenges, and achieve their personal and educational goals. They show an active concern for students, providing both proactive and reactive interventions through ongoing conversations. Success coaching is a teaching, learning, and empowering process wherein coaches guide and students decide.


Counselors provide specialized proactive care and reactive interventions for students, especially in regard to mental health, wellness, disability accommodations, coping skills, self-affirmation, self- discovery, and career exploration. Counselors promote personal growth and a sense of responsibility within students such that they are empowered to reach their personal, social, and educational goals. Counseling is a teaching, learning, and empowering process wherein counselors guide and students decide.
