Student Support Services (SSS)
This program at NAU provides assistance for First-Generation students
Stay on track to graduate. Student Support Services with the First-Generation program ensures you have what you need to envision and achieve success. Our program’s mission is to increase college retention and graduation rates for eligible students. We offer first-year students:
- Mentoring from an upperclass student leader, who can help you make a successful transition to college.
- You will start SSS with a small group of first-time freshmen who share many of your experiences. They’ll become your support system as well as your friends.
- Peer-led workshops on time management, study skills, paying for college, budgeting, personal strengths, getting involved, and campus resources.
- Professional staff who will provide guidance on academic skills, financial aid, and money management.
- Up to a $500 scholarship for each semester of successful participation as a freshmen or sophomore (you must have unmet financial need).
