Missouri Valley College seeks to develop a close relationship between faculty members and students.
Students are assigned an advisor upon registration. Freshmen and Sophomores are assigned an Academic Advisor in the Student Success Center. Once students reach Junior status they are transitioned to an academic advisor in their major field. Advisors may be changed at the request of the student or faculty member.
Students are encouraged to counsel often with the Registrar, their advisors, and other faculty members. Although faculty advisors are available for counseling at any time, special attention is given to guidance at the time of enrollment for each term, at the time of distribution of mid-term grades, and at times when any special difficulties of students are reported by other faculty or staff members.
