Student Support Services

Student Support Services is TRIO's collegiate component, and it offers eligible students advising and tutoring to help them continue their educations and complete bachelor's degrees. Student Support Services advisors remain with students until they graduate.

Students may be eligible for services if they meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Meet Low Income Guidelines: The student's taxable income is at or below a scale set by the Department of Education's Federal TRIO Programs.
  • Have a Disability: The student has a documented physical, psychological, or learning disability. Verification of the disability is needed from the student's physician or psychologist.

  • Advising/scheduling assistance
