TRIO is Here to Help You

Ana is the first person in her family to attend college. Also, her parents have limited income, and she is hard of hearing, which she received services for throughout her elementary and secondary school years. As a student, Ana meets all three qualifiers of the TRIO program.

The federal government defines TRIO as:

"The Federal TRiO Programs  are federal outreach and student services programs in the United States designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. They are administered, funded, and implemented by the United States Department of Education."

Students must meet at least one of the eligibility requirements:

1. First generation students, or no parent has completed a bachelor degree.
2. Low income, or receives state services
3. Disability, or documented mental or physical impairment

Meet some of the Faces of Trio:

TRIO is a college career saving lifeline for many students. The program and its well trained staff are able to assist with a variety of needs, such as:

TRIO Advisor Robert Arenas Speaking to Students

TRIO can help set up one-on-one tutoring sessions, lend textbooks, give emotional support, meeting other new students, and so much more! It's an often overlooked program when students go on campus tours. But, don't underestimate its value. Because of TRIO and its services, many students are able to complete their college degrees. 

If you or someone you know who is in college meets the above criteria, have them dash to the TRIO office to sign up for these wonderful FREE services.

I'm proud to be a supporter of TRIO!
