TRiO - Student Support Services must meet three main objectives to continue yearly funding

  • Persistence - A student must persist from one academic year to the next academic year.
  • Good Academic Standing - A student must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA or above.
  • Graduation & Transfer - A student must graduate and/or transfer to a four-year school within four years.
  • APPLY TODAY!

These objectives are accomplished through the work of the TRiO - Student Support Services staff in coordination with each student who is a participant in the program.

TRiO has laptop computers to loan, iPads to assist students with their studies, and a library with current textbooks. Textbooks, like the iPads can only be used within the college premises.
