More Resources

Sonoma State provides many academic support services and enrichment activities for students. The Academic Workshops, STEM Freshman Interest Group (FIG), LSAMP Math Summer Program, SSU Tutorial Center, and SSU Learning Skills Services are just a few of the resources available to encourage students in their pursuit of their bachelor's degree.

Listed below are SSU programs that seek to encourage achievement among disadvantaged and non-traditional students. Students should look into additional opportunities for furthering their success through these programs.


As described on their site, quote:

"SSU aims to recruit, retain, and graduate more students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to meet the science and technology challenges faced by California and the nation. The School of Science and Technology recently established a MESA Engineering Program (MEP) to enrich the learning environment for educationally disadvantaged students so that upon graduation these students can help fill STEM-related professions. SSU MEP completes the MESA pathway for students in the northern California region that are part of the established and growing MESA Schools Programs (MSPs) and MESA Community College Programs (MCCPs) in the region.

Through strong community building, academic support programs, and a rich array of educational enrichment opportunities, the MESA at SSU program works to advance our student's achievement and success."
