On Campus Programs

Georgia State University houses two Student Support Services (SSS) Programs: SSS-Classic and SSS-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)- both of which are federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education and are a part of the Office of Educational Opportunity and TRIO Programs. These programs are designed to increase the retention and graduation rates of undergraduate college students who are either first generation, and/or demonstrate low income, and/or have a documented disability. SSS-STEM focuses on providing services to students majoring or minoring in a STEM discipline, while SSS-Classic serves students majoring in any of the Georgia State University undergraduate disciplines. Some of the services offered to increase the students’ academic success are: individual and group tutoring; academic advisement; career exploration; cultural events; educational field trips; academic, personal, leadership and professional development workshops; financial aid information; advocacy; and a technology lab with access to free printing, copying, faxing and scanning capabilities. Both programs encourage and prepare participants to attend professional and/or graduate school after successfully completing their first undergraduate degree.
