Academic Support

The College of Menominee Nation is pleased to be able to offer academic support to students at no cost to them. Support is offered in most academic subject areas, test preparation, computers, software, study and life skills, and financial planning.

The Stay Connected Program

As we continue to manage our services through the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of Menominee Nation is taking immediate steps toward making it easier for our students to connect to the internet at home. Chief among these steps is the "Stay Connected" program, which enables CMN to help students with their Internet bills through Spectrum, or gain Internet service if they do not currently have it.

Quick Facts

  • New Spectrum internet service customers will receive a rate of $57 per household. The College will pay the cost of new service connections, plus your monthly bill of $57. 
  • If you have an internet connection, but not with Spectrum Enterprises, you are still eligible to receive assistance. The College will pay $57 per household towards your current internet service provider bill. 
  • For all current students that have internet services, CMN will pay your bill effective November 1st through December 31st. 
  • Students must be registered for the current term to qualify for the Stay Connected Program.    
  • Internet bills will be processed the last week of each month.
  • Students will be responsible for submitting their bill on a monthly basis to the College and a payment will be processed to your provider. 
  • If your current internet service provider is not in your name, a statement must be submitted by the individual(s) you are residing with.

Student Achievement Specialists (SAS)

Academic advising, provided by Student Achievement Specialists (SAS), is an integral part of student success at the College of Menominee Nation. All students have opportunities to discuss education, career, and personal goals with their SAS. Advising services include course selection assistance, transfer information, adding/dropping courses, petitions, graduation requirements/questions, study skills, goal setting, motivation, and personal counseling referrals. SAS can assist, but final responsibility for student success rests with the student. When seeking assistance, students should contact their SAS first.

In-depth services are available at local agencies serving communities near both campuses and the Menominee Tribal Clinic in Keshena. These resources are listed in local telephone directories and the CMN Family Resource Listing. The financial responsibility for receiving services from these community service agencies rests upon the person receiving the services.
