Student Services Reference Guide

On behalf of the Division of Student Services, welcome to SUU! We know students will come to you for guidance, regardless of your position. We are excited and ready to partner with you to aid in their success. You may not know all the answers, but with this Reference Guide, we hope to help you learn where to find the answers! You will also find that some "student services" are open to more than just students!

Admissions & Recruitment

ST169 865-8360 http://suu.edu/prostu/
You'll come across students in every facet of your life. Whether they are the next-door neighbor's daughter or your nephew who lives cross-country (or YOU!), for questions about how to be admitted to SUU, this is your place.

ADA Disability Support Services

ST206 865-8022 http://suu.edu/ss/support/disability/

Bookstore

The Bookstore is responsible for all retail sales on campus and items are also available online. In addition to textbooks, you may purchase office supplies for on-campus entities tax-free. The Convenience Store (C-Store) is across the hall from the Bookstore and offers a variety of health and beauty products, as well as snacks and drinks. A portion of Bookstore revenue is used to fund student scholarships.
