Student Success Services

Student Success Services

Student Success Services (SSS), a TRIO federal grant program, aims to increase college retention, graduation rates, and career options for first-generation college students, those from low-income families, the physically challenged, and students with learning disabilities.

The SSS program has three major components: academic support, career counseling, and out-of-class learning activities. SSS is committed to assisting students in making a successful transition when making a change of location from the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus to University Park or other Penn State locations. The Student Success Services program enjoys collaborating with other academic units and student organizations to fulfill its mission.
