The U.S. Department of Education has announced that Syracuse University will receive a federal Student Support Services (SSS) grant of $2,059,465 over five years to help more students succeed in and graduate from college. SSS at Syracuse University is one of the longest running SSS programs in the country and has been in existence since 1979.
“Syracuse University’s 40-year plus commitment to Student Support Services is representative of its core values,” says Syracuse University SSS Director Craig Tucker.
SSS helps college students who are low income, first generation (those whose parents do not have a four-year college degree) and students with disabilities. Services such as academic tutoring, financial aid advice, and career and college mentoring, enhance academic success and make it more likely that students will graduate with the lowest possible debt.
