 Student Success Program

 

El Camino College has two types of probation: Academic Probation and Progress Probation. The purpose of probation is to encourage a student having academic difficulties seek appropriate guidance and support in formulating and achieving goals.

We are here to support you. The Student Success Program (SSP) offers counseling and advising, in addition to a variety of enhancement workshops, and can also connect you with additional support services on and off campus to help you be successful in college.
