What is an OSSA?

Online Student Success Advisors in the Office of Continuing and Distance Education provide student support. Your best friend supporting your education will probably be your OSSA. As students call or email with questions, the OSSA is their “go to” person. They help at every step – from getting started with online coursework, course information, registration procedures, dropping courses, and more. Our goal is to make your education experience a little bit easier and more personalized.
