Student Success and Support Program (SSSP)

Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) (formerly Matriculation) is a process that enhances student access to the California Community Colleges and promotes and sustains the efforts of credit students to be successful in their educational endeavors. The goals of Student Success and Support Program are to ensure that all students complete their college courses, persist to the next academic term, and achieve their educational objectives through the assistance of the student-direct components of the student success & support program process: admissions, orientation, assessment and testing, counseling, and student follow-up.

The Student Success and Support Program Unit provides coordination and leadership to the community colleges with respect to credit and noncredit programs and services. Staff also provide technical assistance in the areas of prerequisites, assessment, and student success and support program plan review, in addition to administering the SSSP budget: allocations, recycling funds, and special project grants and contracts.
