Student Support Services

The college years are some of the most life-transforming, yet challenging. At Student Support Services, we help students to be successful during every step of their journey.

Student Support Services

Student Support Services is focused on helping students succeed, in and out of the classroom. It offers a variety of services including the Student Success Program, an example of Kuyper’s commitment to every student.

Student Success Program

At Kuyper, we want every student to succeed. And we provide the resources to ensure that success. We pair each freshman one-on-one with an upper-class level student who serves as their student success coach. They listen, encourage, and champion them. Student success coaches help students thrive in all aspects of life. Academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. They provide care and direction on a wide range of topics, such as the transition to college, understanding study skills, plus accountability to assignments, what healthy friendships are, and how to build a support system.

Career Services

Career Services (CS) helps guide students and alumni through a life-planning process, including the development of professional skills, opportunity awareness, personalized assessment, and exposure to out-of-classroom learning experiences.
