Center for Student Services and Success

The College of Health and Human Services is committed to your success - in the classroom, in the clinic, and in your life after WMU. We have redefined our student services offerings to simplify the process for you and to make it easier for you to find the help you need.

You can find the Center for Student Services and Success in the atrium of the CHHS building. (It is in the space that was previously an open computer lab.)

Our services fall into three main categories:



  • Academic Advising

  • Success Coaching

  • Professional Development

  • building exterior

Staff and student ambassadors are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Stop in if you're not quite sure where to find the help you need. Our staff can connect you to resources in the college or elsewhere on campus.

We're here to help prepare you for a career that is high in demand, high in meaning, high in satisfaction and unsurpassed in impact.

Our student ambassadors wear many hats. They meet with prospective students and their families, they work in our office, but first and foremost, they are students in our programs. Here are some "day in the life" videos of our fantastic student ambassadors to give you a taste of what to expect when you choose WMU:
