Student Support Services
Student Support Services Mission Statement
Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded Title IV program whose mission is to offer appropriate academic support services to Cameron University students who have academic need and are first generation, low-income, or students with disabilities. SSS seeks to enrich the college experience for the at-risk students who are accepted into the program. SSS strives to retain and help program participants graduate with baccalaureate degrees by providing academic advisement, tutoring, mentoring, career counseling, financial assistance information, SSS section classes and workshops, and information about campus and community resources.
Student Support Services’ retention and graduation program helps students to acquire skills, knowledge, values, and attitudes that will enable them to lead creative, productive, and self-fulfilling lives.
Focusing on building basic academic skills in the areas of remedial classes, SSS members are given priority into SSS sections of beginning algebra, intermediate algebra, and developmental writing. Tutoring labs staffed by faculty and trained peer tutors provide regular assistance for math, English, science, basic computer skills, and reading/study strategies. Additionally, tutoring for general education courses may be arranged on an individual basis.
Note: The U.S. Department of Education funds 100% of Cameron's Student Support Services operation. For the 2010-2011 program year, a total of $399,376.00 was provided by a federal Title IV grant.
