Academic Support

Burns & McDonnell Student Success Center

The Student Success Center (SSC) supports student development through individualized tutoring, peer-to-peer life skill coaching, and campus programming.  The SSC was developed to provide additional assistance for students academically and help bolster non-academic life skills.

The SSC employs Student Success Coaches who help students identify goals, create individualized study plans, educate on life skills, and support students throughout their academic journey.  Academic Tutors instruct students on course concepts, homework assignments, and test preparation for over 60 S&T courses at the SSC.  Together, Student Success Coaches and Tutors work to provide supplemental assistance to the S&T campus and promote an inclusive environment for Miners to learn and grow.

All student Miners are encouraged to utilize the SSC's free services to get timely support and to enhance their S&T Miner Experience.  Visit the SSC at 198 Toomey Hall or contact us at
