What is TRiO Student Support Services (SSS)?

TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) is a federal program which helps students graduate with an associate degree or transfer to a 4-year school for a bachelor's degree.

The program is open to students who are either low-income or whose parents did not graduate with a bachelor's degree. Students must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or refugees.
