Can You Benefit from Student Support Services?
Student Support Services (SSS) is a federal program that helps students whose educational and economic backgrounds make completion of a degree program especially difficult. The program benefits low-income and first- generation students, as well as students with disabilities.
Students receive the support they need to make a successful transition to college life. SSS provides counseling, tutoring, cultural activities and instruction to assist them in overcoming difficulties they may experience as a result of class, social and cultural barriers to higher education.
The SSS program is funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act 1965 and the federal TRIO Program. Cal U is one of more than 700 colleges and universities nationwide participating in TRIO.
Upward Bound for High School Students
The Upward Bound (UB) programs are designed to assist eligible students in completing a program of secondary education and entering and succeeding in a program of post-secondary education. Students are provided with supplemental academic instruction, tutoring, career planning and self-awareness classes to help develop those skills.
The UB programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and the Federal TRIO Program. Cal U's UB programs serve high school students from Fayette and Greene counties.
