Guide to Spring 2021

The Division of Student Affairs is made up of a team of great people organized into dynamic units and departments that all create a learner-centered environment to provide transformative experiences for our students.

Our Mission


Stephen F. Austin State University is a comprehensive institution dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, creative work, and service. Through the personal attention of our faculty and staff, we engage our students in a learner-centered environment and offer opportunities to prepare for the challenges of living in the global community.


We provide transformative experiences for our students with:

Student Emergency Aid Fund (See our students explain why this matters...)

College is a challenge, but for many Stephen F. Austin State University students, these challenges can include more than just research papers and exams. More than 72% of SFA students are considered at risk of not completing their degrees.

For our students, even small setbacks can put their dream of achieving a college education in jeopardy. However, this also means that even small assistance can make a big difference!

The Student Emergency Aid Fund at SFA helps students in need of one-time assistance due to a sudden financial need.

Contributions of any amount are put directly to work to help our students achieve their goal of an SFA education.

You can be the tipping point that makes a difference in the lives of SFA students. Please consider making your donation today.
