TRIO Student Support Services

TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is an educational support program funded by the United States Department of Education, whose goal is to help eligible students graduate on schedule with the lowest amount of financial debt.

What is TRIO?

TRIO is a set of federally-funded college opportunity programs that motivate and support students whose educational and economic background can make the pursuit of a college degree difficult. Over 850,000 Pell recipients, first-generation students and students with disabilities from sixth grade through college graduation are served by more than 2,800 programs nationally. TRiO programs provide academic tutoring, personal counseling, mentoring, financial guidance, and other supports necessary so that students can focus on earning a degree.
