Student Support Services is a special program financed through a federal grant and Utah State University with the purpose of providing additional support to students who meet particular qualifications. The Student Support Services Program seeks to prepare and support students for the challenges of higher education by offering assistance in:

  1. academic advising and guidance,
  2. tutoring on an individual and group basis,
  3. course selection,
  4. reading and study skills enrichment (PSY 1750 , PSY 1730 ),
  5. mathematics and statistics instruction (MATH 0990 , MATH 1010 , MATH 1050 ; and STAT 1040 ),
  6. financial aid education and planning, and
  7. early registration.

To qualify for these services, a student must be an American citizen or permanent resident of the United States, must be registered at Utah State University, must demonstrate academic need for services as defined by the institution, and must meet one of the following U.S. Department of Education criteria:
