What is Student Support Services?

Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded TRIO program that allows selected educational institutions or agencies to provide fundamental support to students at the college level. Students involved in SSS will receive free on-campus services from academic advising to personal mentoring. Our goal at Student Support Services is to increase the retention and graduation rates for our OSU students.
