Program Description

The program provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. Student Support Services (SSS) projects also may provide grant aid to current SSS participants who are receiving Federal Pell Grants. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants and help students make the transition from one level of higher education to the next.

Participant Eligibility for Program Services

To receive assistance, students must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in a program of postsecondary education at a grantee institution.

Students eligible to participate in SSS projects include students:

  • Who receive Federal Aid/Pell Grant
  • Whose parents did not receive a bachelor’s degree
  • Who have a documented disability

Two-thirds of the participants in any SSS project must be either disabled or college students whose parents did not receive a bachelor’s degree who receive Federal Aid/Pell Grant. One-third of the disabled participants must also receive Federal Aid/Pell Grant.

Please complete the Student Support Services Application to apply for the program.

Supplemental Grant Aid

Supplemental Grant Aid is a financial award available to participants through a generous grant from the US Department of Education. Student Support Services Supplemental Grant Aid is intended to meet the following goals:

  • Improve student retention by supplementing financial assistance for students with unmet financial need.
  • Improve academic success by reducing the number of hours students need to work.
  • Provide incentives for students to make timely progress in their degree program and to successfully complete their remedial coursework.
  • Demonstrate support for students who are actively using SSS resources to facilitate their academic needs.
