Student Support Services (SSS) provides services to first-generation, low-income students and students with disabilities at Adams State University. Services for qualified students include tutoring, mentoring, academic and life skills workshops, supplemental financial aid for those who qualify, and educational field trips.

The purpose of SSS is twofold: to increase retention and graduation rates of eligible students and to foster an institutional climate supportive of first-generation, low-income students and students with disabilities. Because the program is federally funded, all services are free to qualified students.

Students who have recently graduated from high school, have already been accepted into Adams State University, and are planning to attend Adams State for the fall semester are eligible to apply for SSS Summer Scholars Program. Students live on campus for three weeks and are enrolled in a three-credit English class. They also receive credit for the Academic Achievement Strategies course and one credit for a math strategies course. Call 719-587-7632 for more information.
