Student Success Center

About

The Student Success Center (SSC) is a comprehensive set of programs and services to support all students, from first semester to graduation, in setting and meeting their instructional goals. SSC locations offer a student friendly work environment where students may work on their own, in groups, or with a lab specialist or tutor. The following services are provided free to students:

Tutoring

Appointments

Students can follow the Student Support Scheduling app in My.Hinds to create an appointment with a particular tutor, lab specialist, or SSC faculty member.

Walk-Ins

Students can drop-in any SSC location to receive services without an appointment.

Virtual Tutoring

Virtual tutoring in select courses, such as Biology, Psychology, or Chemistry, are also available.

Academic Coaching

Academic coaching services are provided by an SSC Lab Specialist, tutors, and faculty. Students will learn time management, study skills, note-taking, how to combat procrastination, and how to communicate with their instructors.

Non-Credit Training

The Student Success Center will offer a variety of non-credit courses and training opportunities designed to meet the needs of both students and the community at large through the Continuing Education Program. This program will coordinate various services, including but not limited to:

  • Hinds Teacher Academy
  • Basic Computer Skills and Keyboarding
  • ACT Prep

Mentoring

Hinds cares about supporting our students! We provide one-on-one mentoring to all students in LLS/RST 1312 Orientation through our Wingman program to help them successfully acclimate during their first semester. We support Hinds faculty and staff in being trained on Appreciative Advising for all their interactions with students; and we plan to support a Faculty Advising initiative that will connect faculty and students through the Guided Pathways movement.
