ABOUT STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES (SSS)
Student Support Services is a TRiO support program designed to maximize academic performance for UNCG students who are first-generation college students, from modest income backgrounds based on US Department of Education guidelines, or who have a documented disability registered with OARS, and who also demonstrate academic need for services.
SSS Classic serves 210 undergraduate students in all majors and at all levels.
SSS STEM-Health Sciences (STEM-H) serves 120 undergraduate students in majors including: Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Computer Science, Geography Environment and Sustainability, Human Development and Family Studies, Information Systems, Kinesiology, Math, Nutrition, Physics, Pre-Health/Pre-Nursing, and Public Health.
Services provided through both SSS programs include:
- Individual instruction in and development of academic skills
- Personalized academic counseling, financial aid literacy, graduate/professional school guidance, and career coaching
- One-on-one tutoring in up to two courses each semester
The Goals of UNCG's SSS programs are to support students throughout college to graduation and beyond, and to help students make the transition from one level of education to the next.
