UC Clermont Student Success

The Office of Student Success at UC Clermont embraces the student-centered mission of the college.  Our intention is to treat each student as an individual, recognizing that they come from different experiences, with different levels of academic success and with varying other responsibilities in their lives.

We strive to help each student, especially those with limited academic resources, to find their individual path to success.

Education can transform lives, but not every student’s journey will look the same. Embrace YOUR potential and let us help develop a plan for YOUR success. We will meet you where you are in life right now and we will assist every student who wants to help themselves reach their goals.

Areas of Focus


Our #1 goal in the Office of Student Success and at UC Clermont is to help our students be as successful as possible! Our four areas of focus that students need to succeed include, but are not limited to:

  • Academic Resources/Initiatives
  • Financial Success
  • Engagement and Belonging
  • Health and Wellness 

Sauls Stay in School Grant

The Stay-in-School Fund was established in 1990 by James E. Sauls, Sr. out of concern for UC Clermont College students who may have to drop out of school due to a financial emergency.  To help UC Clermont College students pursue their education, the Sauls Stay in School Grant provides stop gap funding until other identified resources become available.

Start Smart Program

The Start Smart Program provides identified students with access to a range of resources and support services tailored to their individual needs. These may include academic advising, peer tutoring, academic coaching, peer mentoring, and more. Our dedicated team is committed to providing you with personalized guidance and support to help you overcome any academic challenges and reach your full potential.

While in the program, each student works with our team to complete a balanced schedule that works toward completing foundational courses, while transitioning to the rigor of college work. This schedule will include a reduced course load during your first semester. This individualized approach allows for the consideration of outside commitments, responsibilities, and facing obstacles early.

We BELIEVE in our students and their ability to succeed, and when students are in our program, they have a team of people who have their back and encourage them to step out of their comfort zone and build habits that can turn their dreams into reality.
