Expectations of all participants
Morehouse College provides a rigorous academic experience. The expectation is that each student will attempt to maintain the highest grades possible. Student Support Services is essentially a retention project, therefore it is expected that all SSS participants will make a demonstrable commitment to their education. This commitment includes regular class attendance, regular attendance at assigned tutoring sessions, and continued development of good study skills; participate in academic advising prior to registration and regular contact with the Student Support Services advisor. Academic and personal advising is an on-going process throughout the duration of the student’s participation in project. Additionally, it is expected that each student at Morehouse College and in particular each SSS participant will govern himself with the highest degree of integrity as he navigates this environment on his way to graduation. In order to assist first year students in adjustment to this rigorous academic environment, the Student Support Services Project provides a multiplicity of services, some are outlined here.
