Steps to Succeed in College

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

SSSP Services

SSSP keeps you on track by working with other services and programs on campus to help you reach your goals. By completing these steps, you'll qualify for Priority Registration, which allows you enroll in courses earlier.

Deadlines to Complete SSSP Services

In order to receive Priority Registration, you must complete an Orientation, Educational Plan, and self-placement by the deadlines listed below.

Semester Deadline
Summer/Fall 2nd Thursday in March
Winter/Spring 3rd Thursday in October

New students are required to satisfy the orientation requirement by their first semester at Mission College. Orientation provides students with information about the college programs and services, degree/certificate/transfer requirements, registration, and more.

Placement and Assessment Services

Placement and Assessment services help to 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.

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.
