Student Support Services (SSS) is a federal grant program housed on the campuses of colleges and universities. The program exists to provide opportunities for academic development, assist students with basic college requirements, and to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education.

Since 1992, the Student Support Service Program has been a staple on the campus of the Technical College of the Lowcountry. Some of the services offered through this program are:

  • Academic Support and services
  • Advocacy
  • Personal Support
  • Peer Mentoring
  • Career Preparation
  • Tutorial Assistance
  • Financial Aid Assistance
  • Leadership Development

Every year, Student Support Services recognizes first-generation college students and the programs that make attending college possible on Nov. 8, annual National First-Generation College Celebration. Activities typically include a luncheon with guest speakers.
