Cameron University Student Support Services to offer informational sessions for first-generation college students and other eligible constituencies

Cameron University’s Office of Student Support Services (SSS) will hold three informational sessions in July aimed at first-generation college students, students who meet federal guidelines for economic need, and those who have a documented learning or physical disability. The sessions will introduce current and incoming CU students to the services offered by SSS and will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, July 23, from 11 a.m. to noon; Wednesday, July 24, from 3 to 4 p.m.; and Thursday, July 25, from 6 to 7 p.m.

To register for any of the sessions, go to https://www.cameron.edu/sss/faq for date-specific links.

A federally funded Title IV program, SSS offers academic support services to CU students who have academic need, are first generation, have an economic need, or are students with disabilities.

“High school graduates who come from families who have no experience in earning a college degree most likely have no frame of reference and therefore may not feel comfortable enrolling in a baccalaureate degree program or find themselves feeling lost when they arrive on campus,” says Elizabeth Hansen, director of the program at CU. “Likewise, students with documented disabilities and those with federally recognized economic needs are usually unaware of the services and resources available to them as they navigate a collegiate experience. We want to ensure these students are familiar with the services we offer so they can enroll into a baccalaureate program with confidence.”

SSS offers academic advisement, tutoring, mentoring, career advisement, financial assistance information, cultural trips and workshops, and information about campus and community resources in an effort to help program participants graduate with baccalaureate degrees. All services are offered at no charge to eligible students.
