What is the SOS/TRiO Application Process?

  • Once a complete application is received and program eligibility is determined, the student will be contacted to schedule an interview.  Each eligible student must provide proof of income or disability at this time.  Also, each eligible student must bring along their U-Card. 


  •  After the interview, the student will be notified about their acceptance status into the program via acceptance letter. If accepted, the student will be assigned a mentor and can begin to utilize any of the services SOS/TRiO provides.
