Student Success Program

The Student Success Program consists of a number of services created to assist those who are in academic difficulty. These support services are suited for students who are on Academic Probation 2 and subject to Dismissal and/or for those who have already been Dismissed from the San Mateo Community College District, which includes Cañada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline College. This is not designed to replace advisement with an academic counselor.
