Student Support Services (SSS) at California State University Channel Islands is a student-centered program that provides assistance to first-generation and income-qualified students as well as students with disabilities. SSS is federally funded to serve 160 students throughout the academic year. The goal of SSS is to increase the retention and graduation rates of those students who are first-generation, low-income, and/or disabled. With the assistance of SSS, students will successfully complete the requirements for a baccalaureate degree and possibly continue on to graduate or professional school. SSS supports student success by providing a comprehensive individualized program of active and targeted assistance aimed at increasing academic accomplishment, as well as by providing and building cooperative and trusting relationships with students.
