Writing and Math Assistance
English and Math are two areas that are crucial to students academic and transfer success. Many times we hear back from university students who wish they would have sharpened their skills in these areas while in the comforts of a community college. SSSP offers you this opportunity with individual and/or group assistance in these subjects. Students who take advantage of these services will not only succeed while at SAC, but will be better prepared for the university curriculum.
Waiting to register for classes that you need can be frustrating. As a member of SSSP you will be able to enroll in classes on the second day of registration, every semester. This will not only ensure that you are able to follow the class schedule you have planned, but guarantee transfer requirements are met in a timely manner.
Using your Education Plan as a guide, we will work together to prepare the best possible route for you to achieve your academic goals. SSSP will work with you to ensure that you maintain good academic standing in order to keep you eligible for financial aid, scholarships, and transfer to a university.
Guidance through Transfer Process
For many students the transfer process can be very confusing. SSSP will work with each student to streamline this process. From researching universities and their requirements, to filing paperwork on time, we will be with you each step of the way to make sure the transition to the university is as smooth as possible.
Individualized Scholarship and Financial Aid Assistance
Finding money for college is not only difficult, but also time consuming. Many students never apply and miss out on assistance that could significantly help finance their education. Our staff will help you make sense of forms, applications, and deadlines, while connecting you to resources that will allow you to concentrate on more important things…. like your education.
Academic Learning Center
The Academic Learning Center provides a quiet learning environment where serious students come to study, work on homework, and/or use computers. Here students will find a computer lab, a study area, and a conference room for private, and/or group study sessions.
Laptop Loan Program
After completing one year as an active SSSP student, you may become eligible to borrow one of our laptop computers. These computers are equipped with Microsoft Office, and have wireless internet capabilities for students on the go!
Personal and Professional Development Workshops
SSSP offers student workshops in a wide range of topics. From time management, to finding money for college, these workshops give students that extra bit of information to help you prepare for what ever personal or professional obstacles they may encounter.
SSSP students, who are eligible for a Pell Grant, can qualify for the SSSP Grant. This competitive grant is given to full-time SSSP students who are active in the program, enrolled in or have completed Math and English requirements, and have a 2.5 or above cumulative GPA. (Eligibility and amount of grant are subject to change.)
