Student Support Services

The Student Support Services Program provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. Student Support Services (SSS) also provides limited scholarships to current SSS participants who are receiving Federal Pell Grants. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention, transfer, and graduation rates of its participants and help students make the transition from one level of higher education to the next. To qualify for services, students must be a U.S. citizen, first generation (neither parent graduated from a four-year college), of limited income, or have a documented disability in the NW-SCC ADA office. Specific
services include but are not limited to tutoring, career planning and interest inventories, assistance with transfer and campus visits, academic advising and priority registration for continuing participants, financial aid planning and scholarship searches, and consideration for direct financial assistance. Application for the program may be made on-line or in the offices located on both campuses. Additional information may be obtained by calling 256-331-8057 on the Shoals Campus or 256-331-6235 on the Phil Campbell Campus.
