Academic Exploration and Advising Services (AEAS) is one of four student resources located in the MU Student Success Center. Together with the Career Center, Learning Center, and Academic Retention Services, AEAS provides academic direction and support for students.

Our mission is to work collaboratively with students to help them develop and accomplish academic and life goals. The advisor and student work together to find a fit between the student's interests and abilities and what the university has to offer. Ultimately, students learn to navigate through and take full advantage of the university.
