Student Success Center


The Student Success Center works in collaboration with faculty, staff and campus-wide academic support programs to provide continuous support for undergraduate students from matriculation to graduation. Students discover the value of engaging actively in the learning process and develop the ability to adapt to the varying challenges of BSU coursework. Ultimately, students’ participation in sessions results in greater self-confidence and independence as they pursue their degree.


 The Student Success Center offers 24/7 tutoring support.

  • SSC also offers a data-informed Emerging Learners Program that is designed to assist students who are experiencing academic challenges with getting on the path to academic success.
