Department Spotlight: Student Support Services (SSS)

Middle Tennessee State

What does your department do on campus?

SSS is a grant-funded program that serves 175 full time students. We are committed to the pursuit of their education. Students must meet one of the following criteria:

  • meet federal financial guidelines
  • neither parent holds a four-year degree
  • have a documented disability registered with the MTSU Disability and Access Center


What are some of the signature events, programs, or initiatives that your department is responsible for?

SSS provides academic assessment and advising, career counseling, major exploration, financial aid assistance, personal support, success workshops, mentor/mentee programs, tailgate activities, and one-on-one tutoring.


How can students become involved with your department?

There is an application process to become a participant in the SSS program. Full-time students can complete an application by visiting our office in KUC 308. Applications can also be found here.


Any advice you would like to give to parents and family members as it relates to your office and your role in assisting students on campus?

We strive to give students a "home away from home" experience. Whether they drop in for a snack, to discuss a situation they are struggling with, or just to kill time between classes, they will always find someone willing to listen and assist them. The SSS office has a “family atmosphere” so encourage your child to apply and become a part of our family.
