The Office of Undergraduate Affairs at the University of Florida welcomes the UF Student Support Services (UF SSS) program. This is a federally funded grant program through the U.S. Department of Education that is dedicated to helping first-generation, low-income or disabled students succeed and thrive at UF.
The UF SSS goal is to help a new generation of scholars maximize their potential and college experiences. Students are offered a welcoming and encouraging environment, such that they are motivated and empowered to complete their degree(s) in higher education. Students are offered opportunities for academic and personal development that extends beyond traditional academic programs. We can help students thrive academically, professionally and personally. The overarching goal of UF SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of UF students.
