Welcome from the Director

 Welcome to Gordon State College's Student Success Center (SSC)! I am excited to welcome you to our community of scholars. The SSC focuses on helping students achieve academic excellence and earn their college degrees. By providing advising, tutoring opportunities and tools to excel in their classes, students are motivated to be the drivers of their education. The SSC is an office dedicated to "helping underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, and advanced students excel" (NADE) through offering personalized assistance in several areas of academic development. Whether you have a specific need, simply want to talk to someone about your academic progress, or would like to become a tutor for our office, you can easily make an appointment with us through our website or stop by Student Center, Suite 235 and speak with our friendly staff. The SSC consists of both physical and digital spaces where students from any discipline at Gordon State College can find the academic assistance they need for a variety of different subjects. The SSC offers face-to-face and online consultation sessions to assist students across a number of disciplines, and over time the SSC will expand to support even more courses. We believe that all students can succeed if provided the right tools and support, which is what the Power of We is all about at Gordon State College. We would love to be a part of your success journey, so please stop by and meet us today! If you are a student at Gordon State College who has questions about what you’re learning, who wants to develop your ideas and receive useful feedback, or who feels stuck and needs a helping hand—the Student Success Center is the place for you.
