Student Success

Student success by the numbers:


The average cumulative GPA of SSS students, including nearly 200 students with a 3.5 or better, and around 30 students with a perfect 4.0 every semester. The average GPA of students eligible for SSS but not using our services is only 2.85.


The percentage of SSS students involved in at least one club, activity or sport while pursuing their college degree.


The amount of grant aid awarded annually to our most dedicated and active first- and second-year participants. These students prove their dedication to success through putting in time meeting with counselors, going to workshops, attending tutoring and more.


The number of miles traveled by SSS students to foreign countries as part of education abroad experiences during the 2017-18 academic year. That's over three times the circumference of the earth!


Out of 957 students nation-wide who received the U.S. Department of State's Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, three were from Binghamton University, and all three were SSS students!
