About Student Support Services

  • Three Advising Sessions Each Semester
    Students will meet with advisors three times each semester. This will allow advisors to see the student at key times both to assess how the current semester is going and to make plans for future semesters.

  • Academic Alert
    Staff will help make sure students are doing will in classes before the end of the semester, so we can help with tutoring and workshops before grades come out.

  • Tutoring & Peer Mentoring
    Tutors have been hired to help SSS participants academically. Tutoring is free and available to all participants in most subjects. Participants will also be assigned a peer mentor who will reach out to them socially and help them adjust to college life.

  • Workshops
    In conjunction the Academic Advising Office, the SSS office will offer a variety of workshops to participants. Including: test-taking strategies, major and career exploration, note-taking strategies, stress management tools, understanding financial aid and scholarship opportunities, time management strategies, and transfer tips.

  • Cultural Activities & Campus Visits
    Each semester a group of participants will be taken to a more metropolitan area to experience a cultural activity such as play, symphony, ballet, etc. Students will also be taken to colleges to help them decide where they might want to transfer.

  • TRiO T-Shirt
    Each SSS participant will be given a TRiO t-shirt when they are accepted into the program.

You must be registered/accepted to USU Eastern, be a U.S. citizen, demonstrate an academic need, be seeking a Bachelor Degree and meet at least one of the following criteria.
