TRiO Student Support Services
“Some succeed because they are destined to, but most succeed because they are determined to.” - Henry Van Dyke
Student Support Services (SSS) is a national TRiO program funded by the Department of Education. Our goal is to ensure that participants persist in college and earn an associate’s degree or certificate and/or transfer to a four-year university. We offer a variety of services, which include:
When you’re ready to transfer, we’ll help you navigate through the application process, prepare your personal statement essays, and identify appropriate references.
You’ll get the opportunity to visit multiple four-year institutions to help you determine which institution best suits your personal and academic needs. Already know where you want to go? These visits are a great way to become familiar with campus!
We offer individual and personalized advisement to help promote your academic success.
Tutoring and Academic Mentoring
You will have access to a private study hall and tutoring lab, designed specifically for SSS students. Our Academic Mentors will be available to enhance study skills in a variety of subject areas.
Workshop topics include money management, study skills, stress management, math anxiety, learning styles, time management, career exploration, test taking – and many more!
Exposure to Cultural Events
You will have an opportunity to attend museums, festivals, plays, musicals, ballets, and other really great activities!
Our resource library includes a wide variety of materials designed to keep you on track academically. Textbooks, cds, software, information cards - we've got the information you need to be successful! Materials must be checked out and utilized in our tutoring lab.
Become acquainted with the library and all of its many resources through our scheduled library orientations.
Community Service Referrals
Not sure where to go? SSS will help you find the right community and campus resources to meet your needs.
SSS students are expected to participate in the program once accepted; however, the level of participation will vary depending on the support you desire. We expect you to be committed to your educational and personal goals – and that you will utilize our services to help you reach those goals.
