Student Support Services (SSS) is a 100 percent federally funded TRIO Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education ($338,973 annually). The College of St. Scholastica SSS program serves 175 SSS students each year and provides free services to eligible students. The federal TRIO programs are educational opportunity outreach programs designed to motivate and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRIO includes seven outreach and support programs targeted to serve and assist low-income, first-generation college students and students with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs.
TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) empowers first-generation, low-income, and students with a disability in their pursuit of a college degree through intensive individualized support and advocacy.
SSS provides free services to eligible students. You may be eligible if you have documented financial needs, a documented disability, academic need, or neither parents graduated from a four-year college. Click here for more details about eligibility and services.
