Center for Student Success - Dothan Campus

About Us

The Center for Student Success has merged several existing student support offices to provide a central environment of support to help our students navigate their journey toward academic achievement. This journey will begin with testing, assessment, and advisement and will continue through accommodation, remediation, and follow-up services and programs. Our combined efforts will increase retention and enrollment and student success from their initial entry on the Dothan Campus to their graduation.

Personal Counseling

 

Student counseling services are available to currently registered Troy University, Dothan Campus students. We want your academic experience to be as positive and enriching as possible and recognize the needs of the non-traditional, as well as the traditional student. This program has been developed to assist students with difficulties that may arise during their college career and issues affecting their educational goals. Services are free and sessions generally last 50 minutes or less. All services are provided on a voluntary basis, and it remains the student’s decision whether or not to seek services. Information shared in counseling will be treated with strict confidentiality. Students are seen on an appointment basis, and the Student Counselor is available only during University hours which are as follows: Monday-Thursday, 8:00 am-5:30 P.M., Friday, 8:00 am-12:00 P.M. Contact Joanne Krist, jkrist@troy.edu, 334-983-6556, ext. 21223, to leave a message for the Student Counselor.
