The Office of Student Life and Success (SLS) works to care for the entire student body, let us be your resource and your support during your career at Bemidji State.

Our aim is to assist students and families throughout the college experience while preparing them for the world beyond our doors. We encourage students to have healthy minds, bodies and spirits and through individual support, SLS works toward ensuring that our students have opportunities to become citizens of the world that connect with their purpose.

The resources available on campus support students in distress and crisis, providing resource referrals to students and their families, sending academic notification on behalf of students experiencing emergencies and engaging parents and families in student support. The SLS Office can help you navigate BSU, getting you back on track towards achieving your degree.
