Who We Serve

We work with all degree-seeking students enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts, Twin Cites. We also help recent CLA alumni up to one year after their graduation. We're also the pre-law advising office for all students who attend the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.

Beyond students, we work with employers and recruiters (to help students find jobs and explore careers), and with U of M faculty and staff.

CLA Student Services is committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities. If you have accommodation needs, comments or questions related to accessing our services, please let a member of our staff know.
