Welcome to Student Support Services!

Student Support Services is supported through the United States Department of Education. This program provides academic and self-enhancing assistance to students enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana. All Services are provided FREE OF CHARGE to students who are first-generation, low income, and students with disabilities.

Students are provided with academic, career, personal, graduate school, and financial aid counseling, along with skill and content tutoring. Workshops are held throughout the semester on such topics as math anxiety, resume writing, study skills, and other topics requested by students. Auxiliary services are also provided or coordinated for a limited number of students. The goal of the Student Support Services program is to increase retention and graduation rates.

Each student who is accepted into the program is assigned to an academic counselor. The counselors design an individual plan for each student based on academic record, reported needs, and individual assessment. Counselors are also available to assist students regarding University policy, financial aid, curriculum requirements, personal concerns, and career development.

Throughout the year, workshops are offered to provide students with specific skills and experiences designed to enhance retention, improve grade point averages, and promote personal growth.
