STAR, Success Through Achievement and Retention, provides opportunities for academic
development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate
students toward the successful completion of their AA/AS degree.
Most importantly, all of the STAR staff focus on helping students meet their educational
needs in a positive supportive setting!
The goal of STAR, a TRIO Student Support Services program Federally funded by the
Department of Education, is to increase the college retention and graduation rates
of its participants, and facilitate the process of transferring to a four year university.
For the past seventeen years, the STAR Program has been a prominent part of the San
Bernardino Valley College Student Services family. Having received a commendation
from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Accreditation Committee, STAR
is proud to continue to provide SBVC students with outstanding student service.
The STAR center, serving 200 students each year, offers support services in a comfortable,
student-friendly environment. The outstanding STAR Program counseling staff work closely
with SBVC students to develop and implement successful educational and transfer plans
and cultivate educational dreams. All of the STAR Program tutorial staff have earned
a Bachelor's degree and many are pursuing Teaching Credentials and/or Master's degrees.
