Slug Success

Slug Success (formerly SSC Campus) is a web-based tool from the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to help coordinate, target, and report on advising, tutoring, and other student success services on the UCSC campus. Coordinated and targeted approaches to supporting students are key for retaining and graduating students, thus increasing student success.

For students, Slug Success offers a streamlined platform for making advising and tutoring appointments, communicating with staff, and getting other academic support.

For staff and faculty, Slug Success helps coordinate and target student success services across campus
