TRiO Student Support Services


TRIO SSS serve as advisors for all participants throughout tenure at UT. TRIO staff specializes in knowing the individual needs of their students to assist them in all areas of their experience that can affect their college and career goals. Our unique advising services boast a student to staff ratio of 1:40. 

Students receive ongoing academic support in time management, study skills development, note taking skills, problem solving skills, and conflict management. Students are guided in developing plans for addressing academic weakness and receive recognition for academic successes.

TRIO SSS provides confidential personal support, crisis intervention, and information and referral services. Students are guided to leadership opportunities on campus and are supported in leadership development.

An Academic Success Plan is developed and updated semester. As a contract between the student and the SSS Advisor, this plan identifies specific academic/support needs and spells out strategies for addressing these needs.

SSS advisors will monitor the academic progress of all students in the program. They will also provide intensive advisement to help students successfully persist in their programs of study.

Each fall and spring semester, Progress Reports are submitted on behalf of all TRIO students. Faculty will provide an update on student performance as of the first test, exam, quiz, or homework assignment. Students with less than a “C” in any course are advised to meet with their Advisor to discuss a plan to improve their course grade prior to the semester mid-point.


TRIO utilizes an email distribution, popular social networks, Blackboard, and MYUT for sending information, opportunities, announcements to all students and staff.

Students in SSS are eligible for tutoring. Students can work with one tutor mentor in a subject area throughout the entire semester meeting the tutor at regularly scheduled times on a weekly basis.

Walk-In Tutoring is also available for SSS students. SSS tutor mentors will schedule blocks of time for walk-in tutoring. Tutor Mentor schedules will be posted in the SSS Office and emailed to enrolled students.

Peer mentors act as personal contact for underclassmen students and new students who are adjusting to college life. Entering TRIO SSS Scholars are matched with a mentor after completing their intake interview. Mentors are selected, trained, and managed by the Advisor. Peer Mentors are a resource for students new the University of Toledo. Our peer mentors draw from their own experience at UT as well as from their training to inform and guide newer students who are transitioning from their previous educational environment to our proud Rocket Nation!
