WHAT WE DO
NATIVE AMERICAN RESOURCES
MSS advisement focuses on educating and engaging students in identifying their educational and personal goals. Advisors assist students' transition to BYU and getting involved on campus. Students are encouraged to develop a graduation plan which outlines the journey that will lead students to graduation.
Financial advice and resources are part of the support MSS provides for students to be academically successful and progress towards graduation. MSS is not a financial aid office; students are encouraged to contact the BYU Financial Aid Office .
SOAR is a summer program for students who are entering their senior year of high school. SOAR provides ACT classes, an introduction to MSS resources, and college success information. SOAR students receive admissions and financial instruction, find out if BYU is a good fit for them, and make connections that will support them throughout their college experience.
MSS sponsors cultural programs to promote cultural education and inclusion. Participating students can learn about their own and other cultures through music, dance, cultural presentations, diverse guests, and involvement activities. Programs include Fiesta, Luau, Black History Month, and the Harold A. Cedartree Memorial Dance Competition and Pow Wow.
The Dean of Students Native American Indian Technology Initiative (DSNAITI) provides support to American Indian students in their efforts to graduate from BYU. The Dean of Students wants to complement the institutional support services already available on campus, and offset some costs that are commonly associated with a college education.
