Services offered by SSS are all free and include advising,
counseling, tutoring, supplemental instruction, mentoring,
workshops, cultural enrichment events, and more. Currently, there
are openings for SSS. To be considered, a student must be: a U.S.
citizen, national or meet residence requirements for federal student
aid; and have a need for academic support.
In addition, a student must meet at least one of the following
