Student Support Services is a multifaceted, federally-funded student assistance program. Federal guidelines require that services provided by Trio be directed to students who are low income, first generation, or disabled and need transportation and/or special accessibility orientation. Once the student has been certified eligible, the following services are available: tutoring, counseling, job information, student advocacy, off-campus housing search, registration assistance, assistance in obtaining financial aid, transportation for students with disabilities, and other services designed to assist the student to enhance his/her position at the university. Additional services available by the Trio staff include: Upward Bound, designed to work with low achieving 10th, 11th, and 12th graders to develop skills and motivation necessary for success in post-secondary education; Educational Talent Search, a post-secondary recruiting component providing assistance with admission, financial aid and scholarship applications, and career and academic counseling; Educational Talent Search Initiative, a community outreach program offered to 7th and 8th graders in Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Twin Falls to increase student years in academic education. The program offers career and college planning plus academic support and counseling.
