SSS Summer Program

The UConn Student Support Services (SSS) Summer Program is an intensive five-week session designed to prepare incoming freshmen for the rigor of the college environment while lending support to ease the transition from high school to college. Students enroll in two courses for which they may earn up to seven credits toward their undergraduate degree. Tutoring, college success seminars, academic and professional development workshops, and lectures enhance students’ summer program experience. Successful completion of the SSS Summer Program is required for students to matriculate to the university in the fall.

The SSS Summer Program is offered at the Storrs, Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, and Waterbury campuses. The Storrs program is residential and requires students to live on campus during the five-week session. The regional campus programs are non-residential; students attend Monday through Friday and must provide their own transportation to and from campus. For additional details about the SSS Summer Program, please contact the SSS office at the campus to which you were accepted: Storrs, Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, and Waterbury.


“The SSS Summer Program gave us an advantage over other freshmen because we started the fall semester with a family of friends and had already experienced the college environment.”~ Brandon
