TRIO Student Support Services
Referred to as the TRIO program or the TRIO SSS program, TRIO Student Support Services is one of UT's oldest student retention programs. Federally funded since October of 2001, our selective program has supported more than 280 students toward a baccalaureate degree. One third of those graduates have begun graduate programs across the region.
TRIO SSS is not a tutoring program. We support independence and provide opportunities to develop leadership skills. TRIO SSS is a way to get involved on campus and be your own person.
If you want to develop a strong foundation for college success, make TRIO SSS an integral part of your lifelong success. We seek students who are motivated to succeed, complete their college degrees, and assume leadership roles in their communities.
