My Student Support Program (My SSP)


We know that being a student in the UP can be tough - that’s why tenacity is our middle name (or at least it should be)! One thing we know about thriving in college, living in 3+ feet of snow, and growing together is that it takes lots of resources. This is why we’re bringing you one more option for counseling support at MTU. 

My SSP is a 24/7 telehealth counseling support service that offers free online resources and Student Support Counselors that can help you succeed while at Michigan Tech. Customize your experience with preferred methods of communication (chat, phone or video), with options of multilingual, identity, and cultural matching support available.
