Student Support Services (SSS) at CBC is committed to providing intensive services to its participants that revolve around academic advising, math and science tutoring, exposure to cultural events, and transfer planning. Services offered are not an end, but a vehicle leading to graduation and transfer. All services provided to SSS participants are incorporated into program objectives that meet student retention and graduation/transfer goals. SSS is dedicated to assisting and moving our participants beyond the CBC environment after graduation. SSS students are excellent representatives of what concerted and intensive services can produce.
