Student Support Services

Student Support Services TRIO is a Federally funded TRIO program. The TRIO programs were initiated by the Higher Education Act of 1965.  The original branches of TRIO were Upward Bound, Talent Search, and Student Support Services.  The term TRIO was established to represent these three programs.


SSS TRIO provides support for students seeking academic development, and assists students with basic college requirements by motivating students toward successful completion of their college careers.
