Smart Start Program

Smart Start Mission

THE SMART START PROGRAM (SSP) is a retention initiative under the guidance and support of the Office of Multicultural Student Services. We work to facilitate the successful transition and retention of students whom are first in their family to attend and graduate from a four-year university, during their first year on campus. Students who actively participate in this program will strengthen self-efficacy, broaden their perspective of campus wide resources, and enrich their ability to learn and succeed at the post-secondary level.
