The Advantage Program

The Advantage Program (TRiO/SSS) at Cape Cod Community College empowers students to successfully graduate with an Associate's degree and to transfer to pursue a Bachelor's degree. We strive to guide our students to reach their academic and career goals. Our staff includes advisors, professional tutors and peer mentors who understand the challenges that college students face when completing an Associate's degree.

Through academic advising, tutoring and personal encouragement in a dedicated, caring environment, our participants learn self-direction, resourcefulness and how to advocate for themselves to become responsible, life-long learners in a global environment as they reach their next level of higher education.

Student Comments

The whole program is excellent in its advocacy and support offerings. There is always someone willing to hear your story. It felt like nice and welcoming to be part of Advantage during my time at 4C's. Thank you.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this program. Being an older student with lots of 'baggage', and anxiety issues, having so much support was an amazing feeling. Thank you all – staff and peer mentors for all your support!

Great advisors and tutors to help you with any subject you need more work. It's an amazing program with a lot of resources. I'm doing fine!

I've only just started using this program, but already I do feel more confident about my classes and developing my study skills.
