Center for Student Success and Retention

Providing Quality Service to Every Student, Every Day

The University System of Georgia designates Savannah State University as an "access institution." As an access institution, the university is charged with providing an opportunity for individuals to earn a college degree who may have difficulty entering college because of various cultural, psychosocial and socio-economic issues, which have been shown to have a direct impact on their level of educational ability to attain a college degree. The services provided by the Center for Student Success and Retention (CSS) support the enrollment growth, retention and persistence goals of the university.

The Center for Student Success and Retention (CSS) provides comprehensive academic support classes, services and resources specifically designed to enhance student academic achievement and success. Resources provided include advisement, testing and tutoring services. CSS assists students with developing a roadmap for success as they pursue their personal and academic goals at Savannah State University.

In addition, CSS addresses college readiness through its involvement in the oversight of Savannah State University's partnership with the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools' Early College program and the traditional dual enrollment program for high school students taking college classes.
