The mission the TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) program is to increase graduation rates for our students and to foster a climate supportive of the success of SSS-eligible students. Our program actively provides comprehensive academic support services and encouragement to our participants through to graduation.
To be eligible for SSS, students must be either low-income, first-generation (neither parent has a four year college degree), and/or be students who have a documented disability.
In the first year, students in the program benefit from individual attention, as they work with a team of instructors, peer mentors, and advisors to successfully transition into college.
An optional non-residential summer bridge program is also offered for students to help them meet new friends, find their way around the university, and develop strong college success skills.
Students can begin the SSS program in the summer or the fall in their first year.
