TRiO Program Student Support Services
The Student Support Services program is funded by the Department of Education and is designed to help students stay in college, graduate, and/or transfer to four year colleges or universities. Some students enter college with skills that need to be developed for success in their curriculum. Student Support Services is here to help students reach their academic, personal, and professional potential through our services and programs.
Counseling: Students should schedule an entrance interview with a counselor who will evaluate the student's academic and career goals. The academic counselors work closely with students to develop an Academic Plan. This process consists of advising students about selecting classes, applying for financial assistance, setting academic goals, identifying career options, and utilizing special services such as the tutoring services.
College Skills: Through seminars or classes, individually or in groups, we give you assistance with study skills that are necessary for college success and the quality of daily life
Transfer Information: We offer assistance with completing the college and financial aid application processes, a resource library of four-year college information, tours of various college campuses, and workshops designed to prepare you for transfer to the four-year college of your choice.
