Welcome to Project SUCCESS which is a grant-funded program. Project SUCCESS is the name of Student Support Services at Radford University and is an academic program within the Division of Student Affairs. The office operates under the umbrella of the Federal TRIO programs and is financially supported by the United States Department of Education.
Project SUCCESS was designed to assist Radford University students who are considered susceptible to attain a baccalaureate degree. This population of students is defined as students who are first generation, low income, and/or have a documented disability. First generation students are defined as students whose parents did not complete a baccalaureate degree. Low income students are identified by federal guidelines set forth by the United States Department of Education and are based upon the student’s or their parents’ taxable income. In order to qualify as a student with a disability, the student must be registered with the Disability Resource Office at Radford University.
The goals of Project SUCCESS are to enhance academic skills, develop leadership potential, assist with financial literacy planning, encourage graduate school education, and support cultural enrichment activities in a comfortable, relaxed environment. By doing so, the program strives to retain and matriculates first generation students into productive positions within the professional work environment or into competitive graduate programs.
