TRiO Student Support Services


Students at graduation

Our goal is to keep students in college, increase the number that graduate, and provide an environment that encourages excellence, supports success and fosters involvement.

While financial aid helps students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRiO SSS programs across the country help students overcome class, social and cultural barriers to higher education.

Student Testimonials

I am very pleased with  TRiO SSS. TRiO makes sure that I succeed in my academics. I feel very comfortable in the environment. The people who greet you when I sign in are also nice. Without TRiO my grades and attendance would not be what it is.  D. Cavanaugh c/o 2018, Pre-Major

I was a nontraditional student and the first one to go to college in my family for three generations. I came to TRiO and they helped me in every way possible to succeed.”  E. Agapitos c/o 2013, Interdisciplinary Studies

I enjoyed TRiO’s easy going atmosphere. Especially because of the high stress and [competitive] nature of program. Trio SSS  was and is a much more relaxed and collaborative setting.    - Comment from Annual Survey AY14
