Student Support Services (SSS)

The SSS Bridge program helps students better understand their changing financial responsibilities, become familiar with the services, resources and staff of UWM and improve Math and Reading skills.Bridge provides an excellent opportunity for students to get to know their SSS advisor, become familiar with the UWM campus and to get to know other incoming freshmen. While the Bridge program is not required of SSS participants, it is very strongly encouraged.The SSS Bridge program is free.There is an optional residential component for students who wish or need to live on campus, though there is a fee for the residential component.
