The SVSU Difference

We provide one-on-one financial aid advising, first-year transition programs, academic & career counseling, free tutoring, a recently renovated Campus Mental Health & Wellness Center, and much more.

We keep our class sizes small and our dedicated professors know students by name, which provides many opportunities for personalized mentoring.

We take pride in offering the most affordable tuition of any four-year institution in Michigan, because we believe in making a first-class education accessible to all our students.

Every member of the SVSU staff had a role in providing personal support that cannot be measured. I have no doubt that she made the right decision by choosing SVSU. She has built genuine personal and professional relationships that will last a lifetime.
