Are you the first one in your family that will graduate from college or a university? Are you on financial aid, receiving a Pell Grant? If so, the TRiO program Student Support Services may be able to assist you in achieving your educational goals.
TRiO is a set of federally funded college and university based educational opportunity programs that motivate and support students from low-income and first-generation backgrounds.
Student Support Services (SSS) is located in the GSC room 250, and helps low-income and first generation students successfully begin and stay in college. Participants receive tutoring, academic advising, smaller classes in English, math, and study skills as well as field trips to in-state universities. The last evaluation of this program determined that SSS participants were more likely to remain enrolled in higher education, accrue more college credits, and earn higher grade point averages than similar students who did not receive such services. Interested individuals may stop by the GSC office, or visit www.snow.edu/sss for further information.
