Student Success Center

The Student Success Center uses a holistic approach to help students be successful from day one of their college journey through graduation. The staff of the Student Success Center partners with faculty, other staff, and students to help students be successful and make the most of their Butler University experience.


The Student Success Center houses the Center for Academic Success and Exploration (CASE) and the First-Year Experience program (FYE). The staff of the Student Success Center provides academic advising for Exploratory students, coaching and success programming for interested students, and access to academic support services, such as peer tutoring and study tables, for interested students.

Center for Academic Success and Exploration (CASE)

Through developmental advising, coaching, and process-oriented exploration and reflection, the CASE office helps students develop a plan and take action in support of their academic, personal, and professional goals.

Helping me make a plan.

“I love how the Student Success Center is welcoming. All the staff and students are so friendly and ready to help with whatever you need.

The Student Success Center has helped me learn how to manage all the projects and assignments that I have. They have also helped me find the study tactics that work best for me.”
