Non-Traditional Students

Nominate a faculty or staff member on campus that has been sensitive and supportive of your needs as a non-traditional student!

Have you had a faculty or MSU staff member who has been understanding and supportive of your needs as a non-traditional student? Would you like to let them know how much you appreciate their support?

The Student Parent Resource Center invites you to recognize faculty and staff members by completing a short online form about how they’ve helped you. SPRC will recognize these supporters by sending them a Certificate of Recognition along with a small token of appreciation in your name. Each year the Student Parent Resource Center will publish a listing of all those that have been recognized.
