Student Support Services is a federally-funded program that serves the needs of first-generation college-students. We strive to provide the necessary academic and educational resources that our participants need to take advantage of all educational and career-related options.
Our specific mission is to assist, support, and empower, participants in developing a successful collegiate experience leading to graduation while fostering a campus climate supportive of all races and cultures.
Participation in Student Support Services is open to any NIU undergraduate student who:
is from a family in which neither parent is a college graduate,
is from a limited income household,
and/or has a documented physical or learning disability.
Eligible students are admitted to the program upon completion of an application form, a personal interview, and academic and career assessment.
