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.
Academic Support Offerings:
- Study partners
- Aid in time management and study skills
- Writing Center
- Accommodations for students with disabilities include, but are not limited to:
– Alternative test arrangements
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. In collaboration with Kuyper’s academic and non-academic departments, CS’ objective is to equip students to integrate their faith and calling, pointing them to influence the world for Christ.
