Student Support

The Dean of Students Office is here to help support you with any personal circumstances that may upset your experience at MSUM. Contact us to schedule a one-on-one consultation about your success and what we can do to help you achieve your personal or educational goals. We manage student leaves and absences.

Navigating Student Absences & Leaves

Sometimes life happens and a student needs to be away from school, either a short period of time or an extended time. MSUM and the Dean of Students Office seek to support students during those times.
