"Get Involved. Make a Difference"
Welcome to OSU-Tulsa Minority Support Services. Our main focus is to assess the needs and facilitate the development of minority students through educational programs and activities. We operate on an open-door policy regarding issues or concerns of minority students. The MSS office also serves as a resource for the university community to promote cultural awareness and an understanding of diversity issues.
Academic Advising Referrals
Advisors are assigned based on the degree program a student seeks at OSU-Tulsa. Whether you're entering for the first time, transferring from another college or just changing your degree path, our office can refer you to an academic advisor that can work with you as you finish your degree at OSU-Tulsa. We'll even make the appointment for you!
