TIGER Center for Academic Success
Providing Quality Service to Every Student Every Day
The University System of Georgia designates Savannah State University as an “access institution.” As an access institution, the University is charged with providing an opportunity for individuals to earn a college degree who may have difficulty entering college because of various cultural, psychosocial and socio-economic issues, which have been shown to have a direct impact on their level of educational ability to attain a college degree.
The creation of University College (UC) at Savannah State University is predicated on the “access” component of the University’s mission. The focus of University College and the services provided by the University College/Center for Academic Success (CAS) are directly connected. These two entities together support the enrollment growth, retention and persistence goals of the University.
University College/University College/Center for Academic Success provides comprehensive academic support classes, services and resources specifically designed to enhance student academic achievement and success. Resources provided include specialized advisement, testing and tutoring services.
UC/CAS assists students with developing a roadmap for success as they pursue their personal and academic goals at Savannah State University.
In addition, University College/Center for Academic Success addresses college readiness through its involvement in the oversight of Savannah State University’s partnership with the Savannah Chatham County Public Schools’ Early College program, the traditional dual enrollment programs and the Move on When Ready program for high school students taking college classes.
