Student Support Services
Student Support Services (SSS) is an academic resource funded by the U.S. Department of Education and designed to assist MTC students with completing their educational goals, particularly the goal of graduating and/ or transfer to a four-year college. Eligible students can be enrolled in a certificate or an associate degree program of study. SSS students must meet federal educational and/or income level guidelines, or be an individual registered with Counseling and Career Services for accommodations. If you participated in TRIO Upward Bound or TRIO Talent Search in high school, or if you have participated in the Educational Opportunity Center, you may be eligible for TRIO Student Support Services! SSS provides an array of services at both the Airport and Beltline campuses that includes transfer advisement/counseling; guidance for strengthening academic success skills; academic mentoring; opportunities for educational/social activities as well as visits to four-year colleges; workshops on financial/economic literacy, federal financial aid application and processes, learning styles, and related academic/personal skill development. If a participating student in SSS is enrolled in the AA/AS transfer program, SSS academic/ transfer advisors are the assigned academic advisors.
