What is TRiO?

TRiO-Student Support Services (SSS) is a grant-funded program through the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of TRiO is to assist students in reaching graduation and/or transfer to a four year institution. The TRiO Program serves students who are first generation, receive a limited income, and/or have a documented learning disability. Students receive specialized, one-on-one attention with advising, career development, and tutoring throughout the members' entire education at Zane State College.
