Student support staff reviewing paperwork

Student Support Services is a federally funded program with the objective of providing personal and academic support services to CCC students who are traditionally under-represented in college. These are students who meet certain academic and other guidelines such as low income, first-generation ( neither parent holds a college degree from a four-year college or university) and students with disabilities that impact academic performance.

Program participants must have the academic ability to be successful in college, and they must be working toward graduation requirements, All services provided through this office are free to qualifying students. Federal regulations limit the number of students served by the SSS program  to 200 per academic year.

The SSS program is designed to provide tutoring, career exploration, academic advisement, cultural and social events, transfer information to post-secondary institutions, and financial aid counseling.
