Student Support Services
The purpose of the Student Support Services (SSS) program is to increase the retention, graduation and transfer rates of its participants.

To be eligible to participate, a student must:
- have a high school diploma or GED
- be enrolled in classes at CF
- be a U.S. Citizen or resident alien
- be a first generation college student, or come from a low-income family, or have a physical and/or learning disability.
