WHAT IS A SSA?
SSA stands for Student Success Advisor. SSAs serve as holistic Academic Advisors to all students at SUU. Your SSA will create your first-semester class schedule and provide you with comprehensive advising throughout your time at SUU. SSAs do more than just class registration. You can expect your SSA to connect you to resources, campus clubs and organizations, etc. to help you succeed both inside and outside the classroom.

WHAT CAN MY SSA DO FOR ME?

  • Help you create your first-semester class schedule
  • Assist you in developing a four-year education plan
  • Provide you with comprehensive advising
  • Connect you to campus resources
  • Inform you of registration deadlines
  • Help answer any of your questions

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR SSA

Hold tight! Starting in May your SSA will build the best schedule to fit your needs based on your answers in the TTQ.

Beginning in May, be on the lookout for your class schedule. Your SSA will send you your class schedule that will set you on the right path toward graduation.

Stay in contact with your SSA over the summer. They can help you with any questions, schedule changes, and additional advising needed like four-year plans, educational goals, etc.

Visiting SUU this summer? Schedule a meeting with your SSA. Your SSA wants to meet you, help you set goals and ensure you become a well-rounded student.

If you have less than 30 credits after your first semester at SUU, you will need to meet with your SSA to get your Registration Access Code (RAC) to register for your second semester.

Make it a habit! Check-in every semester with your SSA to make sure you are on track to graduate.

FIRST SEMESTER SCHEDULE
SSAs will use your TTQ answers to create the best first semester schedule to set you on the right path for graduation. Once the schedule has been created, you have the ability to make changes to your schedule with the understanding that your SSA created the best possible first semester schedule for you.
