Student Success Center
The mission of the Student Success Center (SSC) is to provide comprehensive programs, holistic services, vital information and community resources to empower students and support their academic, career and life goals. The SSC is committed to all aspects of student life so students may successfully meet the requirements of academic courses and degrees, choose careers that fulfill their passion and identify higher education institutions to pursue an advanced degree.
The SSC is a safe, secure and welcoming center for students who may need tutoring sessions, library support, career services, a room for study groups or just a fun place to relax. Located on the 2nd floor of the Main Campus, the SSC space is designed for comfort and ease and is conducive for all members of the SAC community.
