Laredo College has successfully carried out the Student Support Services Program since 1973. Although the SSS Program has evolved over the years, the goals of SSS continue to be the same today. The SSS Program is funded to increase the college retention and graduation rates of students within the Laredo community. SSS continues to maintain success by promoting tutoring, academic advisement, and other services for participants at the Center for Learning, Academic, and Student Success (CLASS), which are available at Fort McIntosh Campus (Main) and Laredo College South Campus. 
The TRIO Student Support Services Program at Laredo College is here to provide supportive services to ensure your academic success!
