Each semester Student Support Services (SSS) collaborates with Gateway’s Center for Academic Success to offer a variety of informative workshops. Some topics include basic computer use, stress management, and financial literacy.

Cultural Enrichment
SSS offers participants the opportunity to attend several events on and off campus that stimulate thought and promote cultural appreciation. These events are offered at no cost to SSS participants.

Career Information
If you are undecided or need help changing your major, we have a career interest inventory available to assist you in clarifying your career goals. We also provide coaching on job interview skills, resume writing, writing a cover letter, completing job applications, etc.

We offer our participants short-term academic, career, and personal counseling. We strive to help you define goals and maximize success in all areas of your life. We also offer referrals to outside resources when appropriate.

Financial Aid
The SSS program offers assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We also inform you of scholarship opportunities.

In collaboration with the Center for Academic Success, tutoring is offered to promote your educational success. Tutoring may be offered in a small group setting or on an individual basis. We also provide instruction in study skill techniques, test preparation, and organization. Please check the tutoring schedule for available dates and times.

Dress for Success
The SSS program can refer graduating females to Dress for Success. A referral enables you to be “suited” with a complete career wear outfit, including accessories, for an upcoming interview.
