Student Success and Support Program

Recognizing that student success is the responsibility of both the college and the student, the Student Success and Support Program was established to assure that students who attend a California Community College are given the best possible opportunity to succeed in accomplishing their academic goals. To accomplish this, the college will assure that appropriate services are provided to students to enhance their success.
