Chico Student Success Center


The CSSC requires all CSSC students to make a commitment to their academic goals, career integration needs, and to community service.

  1. Academic Progress Report requests are sent out every mid-semester for CSSC students. They are carefully reviewed and, if necessary, discussed with the student.
  2. Students are provided the opportunity to participate in mock interviews with corporate and government partners, attend etiquette dinners and professional networking workshops.  They also provide support for career fair activities.  All these are coordinated by the Career Center at CSU, Chico.
  3. Every semester the CSSC students are offered the opportunity to participate in fundraising activities for local, regional and national charities. Through the years, the CSSC students have raised nearly $85,000 for the Make-A-Wish organization.
  4. First time freshmen are carefully monitored in 3 main areas: Financial Aid, Housing, and Class Scheduling.
  5. CSSC students can take the Integrative Academic Leadership course for 3 semester units.  The course supports the students’ self-discovery of the purpose of higher education.
