The United for Success (U4S) program, which began at SSU in 1964, is a federally-funded TRiO Student Support Services program designed to help first generation, low-income students, including students with disabilities, who have a goal to graduate with a Bachelor's degree within six years.
The U4S program provides eligible students with a rich variety of services designed to provide academic, personal and social support to achieve your goals and dreams. The program serves 350 students each year.
SSU students who are enrolled in an undergraduate degree program who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents. Students must have academic need and meet at least one of the following requirements:
Students need to come in-person to the Learning Center, in Salazar 1040, to pick up and and fill out an application for United for Success.
All applications are then reviewed for eligiblity, if eligible for United for Success you will be contacted to schedule an intake appointment with one of our staff memembers to introduce you to the services that we can provide.
Students are welcome to apply almost at any time when they are an undergraduate here at SSU.
However, we strongly advise our students to apply early for United for Success, since we can only help 350 students each year. Each academic year we typically have room to accept about 125 new participants into the program.
