The Student Success Center at SWOSU is your link to academic success! The SSC facilitates student successes by fostering faculty-staff-student partnerships, providing innovative academic programming, and learning services complementary to campus. 


Our mission is to increase student retention and degree completion by giving support to evolving individual student needs to achieve their academic, career, and life goals.
