Services offered by Student Support Services

  • Individualized academic advisors (SSS advisors are advisors for the Associate in Arts and Science majors.  We can help guide you in the proper selection of classes and assist you in developing a plan to complete your degree in a timely manner.)

  • Academic Mentoring (SSS offers academic help in select subjects each semester.  This assistance is individualized and space is limited.  Successful, experienced students serve as academic mentors to help participants understand the material for a particular class, assist in improving overall academic skills and help foster better study habits.  English, math, and biology are subject areas for which mentoring is commonly offered each semester.)

  • Help preparing for transfer to a four-year college or university (SSS can work with you to help ensure you take the courses needed to transfer successfully to the 4-year college/university of your choice.)

  • Tours of four-year colleges and universities (SSS conducts tours of schools in South Carolina throughout the year.  Colleges/universities we have recently visited include College of Charleston, Newberry College, University of South Carolina, Presbyterian College, University of South Carolina-Aiken, Lander University, Coastal Carolina University, and University of South Carolina-Upstate.
