TRiO Program Services

​Writing and Math Assistance

English and math are two areas that are crucial to students' academic and transfer success. Many times we hear back from university students who wish they would have sharpened their skills in these areas while in the comforts of a community college. SSS TRiO offers you this opportunity with individual and/or group assistance in these subjects. Students who take advantage of these services will not only succeed while at SCC, but will be better prepared for the university curriculum.

Priority Registration

Waiting to register for classes that you need can be frustrating. As a member of SSS TRiO you will be able to enroll in classes on the second day of registration, every semester. This will not only ensure that you are able to follow the class schedule you have planned, but guarantees transfer requirements are met in a timely manner.

Academic Coaching

Using your Education Plan as a guide, we will work together to prepare the best possible route for you to achieve your academic goals. SSS TRiO will work with you to ensure that you maintain good academic standing in order to keep you eligible for financial aid, scholarships, and transfer to a university.

Guidance through Transfer Process

For many students the transfer process can be very confusing. SSS TRiO will work with each student to streamline this process. From researching universities and their requirements, to filing paperwork on time, we will be with you each step of the way to make sure the transition to the university is as smooth as possible.

Individualized Scholarship and Financial Aid Assistance

Finding money for college is not only difficult, but also time consuming. Many students never apply and miss out on assistance that could significantly help finance their education. Our staff will help you make sense of forms, applications, and deadlines, while connecting you to resources that will allow you to concentrate on more important things…. like your education.

TRiO Instructional Center

The Academic Learning Center provides a quiet learning environment where serious students come to study, work on homework, and/or use computers. Here students will find a computer lab, a study area, a conference room for privacy, and/or group study sessions.

Personal and Professional Development Workshops

SSS TRiO offers student workshops in a wide range of topics. From time management, to finding money for college, these workshops give students that extra bit of information to help them prepare for whatever personal or professional obstacles they may encounter.

Summer Bridge Program

High school students wishing to make a smooth transition to college may apply to the SSS TRiO Summer Bridge Program. During the summer prior to your first freshman semester, you will be oriented to college life through workshops, lectures, group work, and team building exercises. Students will not only become official members of SSS TRiO, but also make connections with other students before fall classes begin.
