Welcome to the Student Support Services Program (SSSP) at University Park


The Student Support Services Program (SSSP) is a federally funded TRIO program serving students who are from low-income backgrounds, or who are first generation college students (from families where their parents or guardians do not have a four year college degree), or students who have a disability.  A community of students and professionals, SSSP provides a broad array of services related to academic, financial, career and personal matters to help participants acclimate, thrive and succeed in the Penn State environment.

SSSP also encourages participation by students with limited English proficiency, students who are homeless, and students who are coming out of foster care.

In order to participate, students must apply and be accepted into the program.
