Student Support Services is a federal program which helps students graduate with an associate degree or transfer to a 4-year school for a bachelor's degree.
The program is open to students who are either low-income or whose parents did not graduate with a bachelor's degree. Students must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or refugees.
The program provides a comprehensive range of academic and other support services to eligible participants to enhance their academic skills in order to increase their rate of retention, graduation, and/or transfer to a 4-year institution.
The program fosters an institutional climate supportive of the success of low-income and first-generation college students. All program services are provided at no cost to participants.
