Student Support Services

Student Support Services is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and offers a range of resources for eligible students. Sometimes it takes a little help to turn a "B" into an "A" or a "D" into a "C." Student Support Services staff can help eligible students make the grade, by providing outstanding academic support and academic enrichment activities to help them achieve their educational goals. Study skills, computer skills, and reading skills are the cornerstones of success. Student Support Services provides a comprehensive and on-going campus tutorial service. Moreover, the program provides opportunities to students who recognize the need to gain proficiencies in the basic areas of reading, mathematics, and English. Additional resources are housed in the English lab to assist students in building and enhancing those skills necessary to become academically proficient, successful, and productive citizens in today’s society. All services are free of charge for eligible students.
