The following services are provided to all program participants:
These resources are some of the benefits that students receive as ASPIRE/SSS Program participants!
Study Center: Study facilities are open to all active ASPIRE participants. These facilities provide a clean and quiet study area with space for one-on-one tutoring and study groups.
Computer Lab: The computer lab is designated for active participants and is equipped with seven (7) PCs, one Mac (1), two laser printers, and internet and e-mail access. All the computers run on the most recent Microsoft Windows software.
Textbooks: The ASPIRE Study Center contains a limited number of textbooks used in the General Education Courses. Participants may use the textbooks in the Study Center during open hours. Participants also may check out a textbook on a first-come, first-served basis, for a limited period. For more information please contact the Coordinator of Instruction.
Priority Registration for Freshmen and Sophomores (under 59 credits): Priority Registration allows participants to register at the same time as seniors. This provides an opportunity for our students to reserve a seat in popular courses or schedule ideal course times.
Laptop Lending Program: ASPIRE owns several laptops for use in the Study Center if all of the desktops in the Computer Lab are in use. Students also may borrow the laptop for a limited amount of time for course projects or research papers. For more information please contact the ASPIRE Office.
