Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded TRiO program under the Department of Education. The goal of this program is to increase the retention and graduation rates of participants and help students make the transition from one level of education to the next. Student Support Services is designed for students whose socioeconomic backgrounds, educational experiences, and personal situations suggest they may experience challenges at the postsecondary level that can be alleviated with the assistance of our services. Opportunities available to Student Support Services program participants include: academic tutoring, career planning and exploration, financial planning & FAFSA assistance, peer mentoring, counseling, transfer advising, social activities, and more. All of our services are free! To be eligible for our services a student must be first generation, low income, and/or have a disability.
