Student Support Initiatives
Welcome to the Office of Student Support Initiatives! We provide support services for students who have been re-admitted after being away from the college for at least a year and are returning on academic probation, and students who are part of the Student Taking Effective Pathways to Success (STEPS) Program.
Our office provides these students with help in the areas of academic, financial and personal advising. Also, students are assisted in locating financial aid sources and scholarships; information about carer options; and workshops designed to meet the specific needs of SUNY Orange students.
All students have Individualized Support Plans developed by the advisor and students based on individual needs. Students meet regularly with their advisor to ensure the plan is being followed and needs are being met.
Student Support Initiatives Staff track the success of the students through grades review, degree audits and mid-semester reporting. EOP, TRIO, OAS and Restart programs serve under Student Support Initiatives. These individual success programs strive to support SUNY Orange students both individually and collaboratively.
EOP and TRIO are collaboratively offering workshops that are open to all SUNY Orange students. Workshop topics cover academic success, financial wellness, community involvement, as well as, health and social issues.
