Mission Statement

The Office for Students in Transition executes quality orientation and transitional programming by providing students with engagement and learning opportunities that contribute to their personal, social and academic success.

We support students in defining their own success and developing a course of action to achieve it, with a particular focus on high school, first-year, and transfer students.

If you have a question or concern, and you do not know where else to go, stop by 42 Solon Campus Center. We will answer your questions, address your concerns, or point you to the right person or office that can!
