Purpose of Student Support Services

"To encourage and assist students who are traditionally under-represented (first generation, low income) in postsecondary education as well as provide qualified students with disabilities with appropriate academic accommodations and support needed to ensure equal access, in the preparation for, entry to, and completion of a post secondary degree." We strive to provide opportunities for academic development with the aim of increasing the retention and graduation rates of our students.
