Student Success & Support Program (SSSP)

SSSP provides services that help you be more successful in college.

SSSP services include:
  • Orientation
  • Assessment
  • Educational Planning

SSSP keeps you on track by working with other services and programs on campus to help you reach your goals. Completing these services also gives you PRIORITY REGISTRATION which qualifies you for an earlier date to enroll in classes!

Deadlines to Complete SSSP Services

In order to receive Priority Registration, you must complete an Orientation, Educational Plan, and Assessment by the deadlines listed below:

Orientation allows you to learn about financial aid, registration, tutoring services, important locations on campus, types of degrees, and more, helping you adjust to your new college.


The assessment process helps place you in courses at the right level, making sure you don't end up with work that is too difficult or not challenging enough.

Educational Plan

An Education Plan helps you identify the courses required to complete your goals and the best order to take them in, helping you determine the amount of time and money you will need to invest in your education and take the most direct route from start to finish.

Waiving SSSP Services

You have the right to waive the requirement to complete assessment, orientation, and educational planning. We believe waiving these services may affect your success at Mission. Be aware, by doing so, you will not qualify for priority registration.

Appeal Priority Registration Date

If you believe that you have been assigned an incorrect Priority Registration date, students can submit a Priority Registration Appeal Form online.
