The Science Student Support Center (CDEC for its Spanish acronym) houses a complete array of services and support assistance to our students to address their needs and enhance their academic achievement through academic counseling, advising and peer-tutoring. Our goal is to create a stimulating and supportive environment where teaching and learning become central to all student and faculty activity. We also provide an effective pathway from high school to undergraduate through our pre college programs and assistance in the undergraduate to graduate transition.
The School also offers qualified students with special interest in research, opportunities for semester and/or summer internships at various national as wells as international universities. Opportunity for research experiences at National Laboratories and Agencies such as Sandia, Los Alamos and NASA are also available. Participating students could receive academic credit for their work.
