UofL's Student Success Center (SSC) supports every UofL undergraduate student throughout the college experience. We're here with a wide variety of resources and programs to support students by addressing concerns in areas including advising, academics, financial wellbeing, and belonging.

Whether a student is in need of a laptop, exploring a new major, facing a financial barrier, or simply looking for a peer who's been there before, the SSC is the place to turn. Our purpose is to help every UofL undergraduate student succeed here and beyond.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of what a successful student looks like--we believe success is defined for each of us by each of us. But successful students do share some important characteristics that we can help students develop.

Successful students make intentional and informed choices; persist to a timely completion in their chosen pathways; utilize campus resources as appropriate; and make meaningful connections with peers, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners. They are prepared academically and personally to engage in their educations and the post-degree pursuits of their choosing.
