Program Eligibility Requirements

To participate a student must be a first generation college and/or financial aid recipient and/or registered with the Disability Resource Center. In addition, participants must be US citizens or legal residents currently enrolled as undergraduate students at FIU.

Application Process

In order to become a participant of the Student Support Services Program, you must apply and be admitted into the program. This process is as follows:

1. Complete the online application

Our online application is open at all times. Once you complete this application, an SSS staff member will review it and contact you via email with an overview of the next steps.

2. Attend an SSS orientation Session

While our SSS Application is open at all times, SSS orientation sessions are only offered throughout the summer and the beginning of every semester. If you apply half-way through a semester, you will need to wait for the following semester's orientation. These orientation sessions are required and provide you with an overview of the program and the opportunity to meet our staff. 

3. Turn in Documentation

Once you have attended an SSS Orientation Session you will need to turn in all required documents reviewed at orientation. This will include your time preferences for your first one-on-one meeting.

4. Have your first SSS one-on-one meeting

After all documents has been turned in, an SSS staff member will schedule your first one-on-one meeting and welcome you to the SSS family.
