TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) and SSS STEM-Health Sciences are federally funded programs through the U.S. Department of Education. Our mission is to contribute to the success of first generation, low-income students, and individuals with disabilities by supporting and empowering program participants in their academic, personal, and professional growth.


SSS students must meet one of the following qualifications:

  • First generation student (parents do not have a bachelor's degree)
  • Low income (no more than 150% above the federal poverty level)
  • Have a documented disability

  • And more!

TRIO Works!

- 96% of TRIO students are in good academic standing

- 97% of TRIO students are still enrolled and working toward their degree

- 82% of TRIO students starting as freshmen graduated within 6 years ('14-'15 cohort)

- 70% of TRIO transfer students graduated within 2 years ('18-'19 cohort)

TRIO SSS has helped me more than I can explain. I have traveled, explored the area, gotten to network with so many people, and experienced unbiased and endless support... I wouldn't have made it without the help of TRIO SSS.
