Office of Academic Affairs

Greetings from the Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs

Welcome to the home of academic programs at Delta State University. If you are a student visiting this page for the first time, you are encouraged to view our list of majors and visit our admissions page. There is a wealth of information available here to help you decide that Delta State University is the right place for you.

DSU has many knowledgeable, talented, and caring faculty and staff who strive to provide you with exciting and transformational educational experiences. In addition, our academic departments and academic support units, such as the Student Success Center, share one common goal: your success. Our hope is that every student who enters Delta State ready to learn will grow intellectually, emotionally, and professionally, and ultimately graduate to lead a full and meaningful life. Our undergraduate degree programs are based on a strong Liberal Arts/General Education program to help students achieve this goal.

A college campus offers a multitude of experiences both in and out of the classroom. If at any time you have questions about how you can succeed, please contact your instructor, department chair or academic dean. The Office of Academic Affairs staff also stands ready to assist faculty, staff, and students as needed.

Thank you and welcome to Delta State University.
