Aligned with the University mission statement, the Student Success Services (SSS) program seeks to prepare each student intellectually, socially, spiritually and personally to participate in and contribute to an ever changing technological society.


SSS serves as the University's academic support center, providing personalized and group services and resources to support all students in the teaching and learning aspect of the institution’s mission. Services offered in SSS include:

  • academic advising (for students with 0-30 credit hours)
  • coordination of the First-Year Experience (FYE) class
  • tutoring (face-to-face or online)
  • retention and engagement activities
  • computer, math, and writing laboratories
  • study room
  • administration of standardized tests
  • disability support services (DSS)

Although the academic advising services are specific to students with 30 semester hours or less, all other services are provided to the entire student body.
