TRIO-SSS strives to provide a range of academic support, career guidance, transfer planning, and professional development opportunities to qualifying community college students who are first-generation in college, have a financial need, and/or disability and demonstrate strong academic potential. Students receive guided individualized assessment and planning, small group tutoring, mentoring, cultural and educational workshops, club and community service activities, and other academic support.
TRIO-SSS is designed to 1) increase the retention and graduation rates of eligible students; 2) increase the transfer rates of eligible students from two-year to four-year institutions; and 3) foster an institutional climate supportive of the success of individuals who are first generation college students and have a financial need, and individuals with a disability.
This project is federally funded through a $230,289 annual grant from the U.S. Department of Education (2015-2020). For more information please contact our office at 844-2366. TRIO-SSS is located in Building 7, Room 309.
TRIO-SSS hours of operation are Monday through Friday (8:00 AM - 4:30 PM). Closed weekends, holidays, school closures, and TRIO event days.
