The mission of Student Support Services is to assist college students with overcoming personal concerns, academic deficiencies and financial difficulties that could impair their chances of succeeding in college. Student Support Services also provides students with the necessary tools to adjust to the demands of a college environment, while helping them develop good study habits and decision-making skills that increase retention and graduation rates for college students.

Students can request an in-person or virtual advising appointment by logging into the Rebel Success Hub or by contacting our office at 702-895-4777. You will need to use your ACE ID to log into the portal. Once in, select your Academic Coordinator to set your appointment. Additional instructions for setting appointments can be accessed on our scheduling page.
