Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) professionals provide direction for student-athletes via academic counseling in conjunction with advisors from the respective Dean's offices at Auburn University.
Academic support services such as tutoring and supervised study table are also provided, as well as career planning, monitoring of eligibility status, and a host of other guidance and advisory services.
Each student-athlete is assigned to a Student-Athlete Support Services Counselor for their entire tenure of study at Auburn University. The SASS Counselors also help familiarize student-athletes with Auburn University, Southeastern Conference, and NCAA policies and procedures.
It is the mission of Student-Athlete Support Services of the Auburn University Athletics Department to promote, assist, and provide counsel to all student-athletes, whether scholarship or walk-on, in the areas of academics, eligibility, career counseling, and healthy behaviors.
Its primary, constant goal is to develop graduates from Auburn University who have contributed in the arenas of athletic competition during their tenures of education, who are articulate, confident, poised, positive, cooperative, and mature decision-makers, and who are outstanding examples of Auburn University's commitment to the development of the whole individual.
It is incumbent upon the members of SASS to keep abreast of the progress of student-athletes and to maintain constant communication with the student-athletes and periodic communication with their coaches, and their Academic Advisors in their respective Dean's Offices. Ultimately the purpose of SASS is to empower student-athletes to become more efficient learners and to assist them in developing skills that will enhance their academic progress, their social development, and their cultural appreciation.
