» Fall 2016 Newsletter

The Student Support Services (SSS) Program is a federally-funded TRiO grant program. Each year over 200 students, who meet the eligibility criteria, are selected. They are invited to participate and receive special services in tutoring and academic counseling.

All TRiO SSS students are mandated to complete Financial Literacy modules.

In addition, the TRiO SSS Program offers the opportunity to belong to CHI ALPHA EPSILON, a national honor society which includes SSS students who meet developmental and academic standards.

To determine your eligibility status in the TRiO SSS Program, print out and return the attached application and/or email a staff member listed below. You have nothing to lose but a bad grade!

Student Testimonials

"When I first applied, I was scared, nervous and excited. Brenda was the first person who told me that I could do it!  She helped me make a time-management schedule, and helped me tremendously with Chemistry. Sheila is an amazing counselor. Bruce Hanson helped me get an A for midterms. Without the help of the TRiO Staff I don’t think I could have done as good as I am doing right now."

"I believe students who come to TRiO will have a great understanding of what college life is like.  With the help of Ms. Miller, I was able to manage my time. Mrs. Peo was able to aid me in times of overwhelming college life. Mr. Hanson was able to support me and help ease my test-taking anxiety."

"I have used tutoring for many courses. The Biology and Algebra tutoring with Mr. Hanson has helped me prepare for exams in both classes and even final exams, while assisting me with proper techniques to complete my homework. I have an A in Chemistry due to Ms. Miller’s complete step-by-step tutoring."

"Ms. Miller and Mrs. Peo provide students with great guidance and counseling, making students feel confident in the decisions they make. TRiO is a place that I spend my time during school hours when I do not have class. I have received Biology and Math tutoring from Mr. Hanson. I’m very grateful for these wonderful people and how much they have helped me be a better person."
