TRiO Student Support Services

What is Trio Student Support Services?

Students admitted to the TRiO Student Support Services Program are provided with an array of services which may include study skills assistance, academic advising, financial literacy training, and career and financial aid counseling.

During the academic year, workshops and on-going services which focus on academic survival and learning-to-learn activities are offered. The services provided are individually designed and are based on the student's needs as identified by appropriate documentation and through discussions with the program staff. Students accepted into the program must meet eligibility requirements established by the institution and the United States Department of Education.
