Welcome to Student Support Services
Student Support Services (SSS), a federally funded TRiO program, assists students through intensive and intentional advising and weekly learning groups. SSS serves first-generation college students (neither parent has a four-year college degree) and guides them through their college career.
Students meet with their SSS academic advisor five times during the first year. As advisors of record, we are listed on their STAR and serve as their official advisor in a similar capacity to a UARC advisor. We meet with students to review: MAP-Works (fall and spring), How to read a STAR (fall), and Course Selection (fall and spring).
Additionally, students meet in small groups every week, led by returning students who are also first-generation college students, to discuss how to be a successful college student. They discuss strategies for utilizing resources, how to politely and professionally communicate with faculty and staff, and learn from various speakers from campus and the greater community.
SSS students learn what questions to ask and how to successfully navigate University life with the help of their peers and professionals.
"The UW Oshkosh SSS program is funded entirely through a TRiO grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The award number is P042A100672 at an estimated $2 million for the 2010 to 2015 program years."
