SSS offers an array of academic support for participants. SSS academic advisors are committed to providing quality services that extend to academic, financial and personal questions.
How do SSS-TRiO participants benefit from our advising?
- Time and individualized attention are two of the biggest benefits you will find when working with SSS academic advisors. SSS will only accept 160 participants during an academic year. Participants meet with SSS advisors on a regular basis by appointment. In situations you feel are urgent you may contact the office for the earliest available time. In some instances you may want to meet with an SSS advisor to discuss options you may have not previously considered and you will not be limited to the number of times that you come in. We meet the needs of participants by offering extended hours to provide you advisement beyond the typical 8-5 schedule.
- Confidentiality is a key in all meetings with SSS academic advisors. All advising is kept in strict confidentiality so that participants are in a safe environment to address issues or concerns.
- SSS academic advisors are knowledgeable of current UNM academic advising policies. We are committed to provide you quality service and consistently work with UNM’s University College Advisement Center to receive training's on updates that directly affect you. SSS participants also receive the added benefit of our academic advisors who are also knowledgeable about financial aid and will guide you through your financial aid questions.
- Success is a goal for all participants. SSS academic advisors also serve as your very own academic coach to help you develop strategies for your academic career.
