- Do I have to pay for being in Student Success Program?
No!! The services are absolutely FREE! The only cost is YOUR commitment to YOUR education.
- On the TRIO Application I am required to disclose my and/or my parents' Adjusted Gross
Income for the previous year. Why?
The SSP Program is a Federally funded program to help the economically disadvantaged
students according to the federal guidelines. This is confidential information and
is used only to determine SSP eligibility.
- How can the counselors help me?
Counselors can help you in many ways. SSP Counselors are here to consult with you
regarding your academic progress, inform you about academic policies that might affect
you, advocate for you, and refer you to necessary services. If you have concerns about
personal relationships, family problems, financial issues, and health problems, the
SSP counselor can advise and assist you with strategies for resolving or coping with
your concerns. All conversations are confidential. The counselor will make referrals
to professional services and agencies within and outside of The University of Memphis.
- Does SSP have a place I can come to study or use the computer?
Yes we do! SSP has a study room in 404 Mitchell Hall, conveniently across the hall
from the SSP Office. The TRIO Computer Lab is located in Mitchell Hall Room 409 and
is open to all TRIO students. All SSP Offices and Labs are open Monday thru Friday,
8 AM to 4:30 PM.
