UNIVERSITY GUIDANCE


 

Dear SSS Scholars, 
 
We at Student Support Services (SSS) hope that you have landed upon this page in good health. SSS is committed to fostering healthy environments for student learning and development in collaboration with peers and staff.
 
Below, you will find important updates regarding the delivery of program support services now that the University has moved to remote instruction and the practice of social distancing for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. As the university moves to online instruction, SSS has also transitioned to provide our services virtually for the rest of the Spring 2020 semester.   
 
TIME SENSITIVE: Please notify us HERE if you do not have access to adequate technology and/or internet services for the duration of this remote instruction and support period. For example, this includes a desktop computer, laptop or iPad enabled with microphone and camera. Our staff is working remotely at this time, so please exercise patience and flexibility as we make every effort to assist in meeting your needs. 
 
Updates and instructions for accessing resources, services, and other supports will be delivered via:
