Located in room 206 of the Administration Building, Student Support Services (SSS) is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Education to help students develop the skills and motivation necessary to successfully pursue and earn a bachelor's degree. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants. SSS offers to its participants individual guidance, tutoring, workshops, financial coaching, career and academic preparation, additional opportunities for scholarships and grants, cultural events, and campus connections. Students selected to participate in SSS have an academic need and: are first-generation college students (neither parent completed a bachelor's degree); have a documented physical, psychological, or learning disability (that may affect their role as a student); or are from a family earning a limited income (determined by taxable income level and family size). All services are free to students selected to participate.
