What is SSS?
Student Support Services (SSS) is all about student achievement and success. Our goal is to help you succeed at Arkansas Tech University, help you attain graduation, and gain the necessary skills to either enter the work force, or enter Graduate or Professional School. It's an opportunity for first-generation college students from low and moderate income families and/or students who have a disability to:
• Strengthen academic skills
• Develop personal confidence
• Explore majors and careers
• Build new friendships
• Make plans for the future
Eligibility is based on federally defined criteria where at least one of the following must be met:
First Generation College Student (neither parent has a Bachelor’s Degree)
Limited Income (Income eligible per Federal Guidelines)
Have a documented learning or physical disability
An eligible student must need academic support and be either a US Citizen or Permanent
Resident who has not yet earned a bachelor’s degree, but is committed to using SSS
resources and graduating from ATU with a bachelor's degree.
