Joining Partners In Education
To participate in the Partners In Education (PIE) program, a student simply clicks on the “Partners in Education (PIE)” link in PipelineMT. Please note that the release does not apply to personal counseling or health information protected by FERPA; however, if students are experiencing problems in these areas, MTSU staff will identify available resources. The student may remove the authorization at any time by simply returning to this link.
Please note that this program does not provide the PIE partner with online access to student information. All information requests are fulfilled through the MT One Stop.
The Partners in Education (PIE) program helps address the needs of students by creating a partnership, fostering communication between students, their families, and the University. Through the Partners in Education program, PIE partners can request academic information and suggestions to help them provide effective support for their student.
