Who We Serve
Deciding to attend college can be a difficult decision.
There are questions that need to be answered. The Admissions office at Great Falls College MSU is designed to be the resource students need to answer those questions. The Admissions office is a student’s directional compass, a cheerleader, a sounding board and an accountability partner.
Admissions personnel are a student’s personal search engines—“Google” of the academic world. Any question a student has, Admissions will find the answer.
Admissions can help with a full spectrum of questions associated with anything prior to the first day of class: Is the student ready for college? What are the student’s interests? What is the student’s skill set? How does a student connect their interest to a degree? Are jobs available with that degree? What options are available to assist with paying for college? What is an advisor? What is a PIN? What password? Where are rooms located? What are the deadlines? Where do students get their books?
Maybe it’s not just the student with these questions, maybe it’s their family. Admissions will work with the student and the family to ensure a full understanding before sitting down for the first class.
The center affords access to tutoring, counseling and mentoring services.
It also provides a common area with computers, lockers, kitchen facilities and a printer for veterans use. Periodically the center brings seminars to campus covering a wide range of veteran specific topics. Most importantly the Veterans Center maintains an area for student veterans to gather away from the busy life of college and form the support groups that are so common in military units. Statistics clearly demonstrate that student veterans who use these services outperform the general student body in three key areas:
The Great Falls College MSU Veterans Center provides support and assistance for our student veterans, active military, their spouses and dependents.
-Veterans using the center retain at a 95% rate - over 20% higher than the general population of 73.5%.
-Veterans using the center average a 3.3 GPA. grade point average, retention and graduation.
The Veterans Center is staffed by a Veterans Success Coach, whose primary duties are overseeing the Veterans Center programs and serving as an advocate for student veterans. Other responsibilities include coordinating activities honoring our military and being a liaison between the veterans and campus or community resources. The Veterans Success Coach serves as the point of contact for all military related matters within our campus.
