TRIO/Student Support Services
Students selected to participate in the TRIO-Student Support Services (SSS) program receive individualized assistance from professional, caring staff members to help navigate through the college experience. We’ll support you until your graduation and assist you into a career. Our services are offered FREE of charge.
Our program is funded by a federal TRIO grant of $220,000 annually for the 2015-2020 program years. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants. For more information about the federal program, visit the U.S. Department of Education.
