What is Student Support Services?
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Student Support Services (SSS) is part of the TRiO Programs. The TRiO/Student Support Services program at Texas State University is 100 percent federally funded at $284,754 annually. Participants will benefit from the various activities designed to improve their academic performance and enhance their college experience ultimately leading to graduation. SSS assists eligible first-generation college students, low-income students, and students with disabilities from all racial and ethnic backgrounds who need academic and other support services to successfully complete their college education. Student Support Services' goals are:
- To increase retention and graduation rates for first-generation college students, low-income students, and students with disabilities
- To foster an institutional climate supportive of success of first-generation college students, low-income students and students with disabilities
But how much will all this cost me?
All services are FREE and are available to students accepted into the program. Participants need only a strong commitment and desire to succeed at Texas State. The services we provide can accelerate students on their path to success. For more information, call (512) 245.2275.
