Frequently Asked Questions by UT Faculty and Staff
What is TRIO - Student Support Services?
TRIO Student Support Services is a federal retention program at UT serving 160 undergraduate students who have limited income, are the first in their families to graduate college, or have a disability. The goal of the Student Support program at University of Toledo is to increase the college retention and graduation rates among the participants and facilitate the process of training from one level of higher education to the next.
Students served by the SSS project at UT receive:
Additionally, Pell eligible first and second year students can qualify for a one-time Grant Aid to help reduce their college costs.
What are the benefits to the student from a referral to SSS?
Compared to the general student population, students participating in the Student
Support Services program are retained each semester in greater numbers, have overall
higher GPAs, and complete their course of studies more often within 5 years than the
general population. See related research
Why should I refer a student to the Student Support Services program?
Working together with Student Support Services support and tutorial staff we can provide an additional academic tool at your disposal. The SSS staff is dedicated to improving overall student satisfaction and confidence for all students at The University of Toledo.
How do we know if a student qualifies?
Students can visit our website to see if they qualify at http://www.utoledo.edu/utlc/trio
What should I look for when referring a student to the SSS office?
We are looking for degree seeking students enrolled full-time. Students who are the first in their families to attend college and have overall adjustment issues to college life despite the ability to do the work are excellent candidates. The best candidate is the one whose grade is between a C & a D, yet has the potential to achieve a passing grade for the course with some tutoring or other intervention. How should I make the referral? Contact the SSS office at Carlson Library room 0300 MS 523, The University of Toledo. If you have any questions, please call (419) 530 3849 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or suggest that your student visit our office.
What is TRIO?
TRIO is Educational Opportunity for Low-Income and Disabled Americans. Congress established a series of programs to help low-income Americans enter college, graduate and move on to participate more fully in America's economic and social life. These initial three programs were funded under the Higher Education Act of 1965.
