Student Success Programs are designed to help participants to be successful college students and assist with any issues participants may have during their time at UWF. Each participant will be assigned a Success Counselor to assist students in meeting their individual goals and successfully complete a bachelorette degree.
Eligibility Criteria: (at least one)
Student Success Programs include:
Book Loan Library - The Student Success Programs has an in-house Book Library located in Bldg 18 Room 146B; the Book Library is designed to assist with the student’s book needs by loaning the books out through what our program calls “The Borrow-A-Book Program” whereby upon signing an agreement the student may borrow a text book(s) for the full semester and return the book(s) upon completion of the class. To accommodate the student needs as best possible, the Student Success Programs make book purchases each semester or perhaps SSP will pay the book rental fee for the student. To inquire about the SSP Borrow-A-Book Program email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (850) 474-2698.
