Students may join the SSS program at any point during their time at St. Olaf. For many people, SSS begins with a summer program prior to their first year. SSS students receive ongoing support and encouragement throughout their St. Olaf careers. The type and level of support varies from student to student, depending on individual needs and interests. From your first year to your senior year and beyond, program staff and faculty will be there to help you get the most out of your college experience.
