This institution recognizes that students enter college with various levels of academic preparedness and that all students are not equally prepared for traditional college-level study. The Student Support Services Program funded by the federal government and the College is designed to help students whose placement scores indicate a need to strengthen reading and English skills prior to their enrolling in selected college-level courses or technical programs.
Students are placed into the Student Support Services Program following basic skills evaluation. The
academic needs of students are assessed individually, and those services needed are provided. The
following services are available to the student: developmental classes in English and reading, tutorial
assistance, counseling, academic advising, and cultural enrichment activities.
Students in the Student Support Services Program may enroll in traditional college courses upon successful completion of prerequisite courses.
