About the SSC

What is the Student Success Center?

The Student Success Centers (SSCs) provides academic assistance to undergraduate and graduate students.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Student Success Center is to positively impact retention and progression by providing academic assistance and support to students and faculty at Middle Georgia State University.

Professional and Peer Certified Tutors

Tutors are provided for both content-specific assistance as well as general topics such as study skills and time management. Tutors are required to complete a training program certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) and seek certification at the Regular, Advanced, and Master levels. 

Open-Use Computer Labs and workstations

Each SSC location has computer workstations for student use. Some locations also have labs.The computers in the SSCs are loaded with the latest software available on campus. Due to limited availability of resources, Student Succes Center (SSC) facilities are for the use of currently enrolled Middle Georgia State University students only.

Macon SSC:

  • 9 computer workstations.

Cochran SSC:

  • Twenty-four computer workstations available for student use.
  • One computer workstation available for professor use.

Dublin SSC

  • Five computer workstations available for student use.

Eastman SSC

  • Three computer workstations in the student success/SSC area.
  • Three computer workstations in the Library area along with one instructor station.

  • Twenty-six computer workstations (including one assistive technology workstation and four Macintosh workstations).
Printing and Scanning Resources for Students

Each semester, students are given $40.00 of allocated printing in the SSCs paid by Technology Fees. Black-and-white prints are charged $0.10 per page and color prints are charged $0.50 per page. Students are encouraged to print double-sided when possible, which reduces the cost to $0.05 per page for black-and-white prints (however, the cost of color prints remains the same at $0.50 per page if double-sided is selected). Students may pay to increase their print allowance, if needed. The allotted printing does not roll over to the next semester. The SSCs also provide scanners for student use.

Study Rooms for Group Study

On the Macon campus, 13 rooms are available for small or large group study. Some study rooms are equipped with computers for group project work and all have tables, chairs, and white boards.

On the Dublin campus, there are three study rooms for small group study.

On the Warner Robins campus, there are three rooms available for small or large group study. One study room has a computer workstation.
