Student Support Services (SSS)

SSS encourages and assists traditionally underrepresented students in the completion of a post-secondary education by providing academic support.  We assist students with short-term decision making and long term planning, connecting them to resources and facilitating their ability to become effective agents of their own learning and personal development.

Academic resources & tools:

  • Tutoring is offered free of charge for all SSS members.

  • SSS Members are given access to first-day class registration. When visiting the Access Periods/Time Tickets registration page, look for the "All Other Special Groups and TX State Employees" descriptor for your access time.


  • If you require a calculator or textbook for class or other academic purposes, SSS offers a loan program. Please come by the office for more information.

  • SSS offers access to a computer lab equipped with 8 desktop computers each connected to the on-site printers.

  • When you join SSS, you join a network of students who are dedicated to helping each other succeed. You also receive guidance from a designated success coach who you will meet with, one-on-one, throughout the semester to help you succeed academically and professionally.

  • SSS hosts and attends many workshops and seminars over the course of a semester designed to improve or teach skills to students in order to provide them with the tools they need to succeed - whether it be financially, academically, or professionally. There are also planned career trips which showcase a potential employer to educate our students about their future possibilities.
