About TRIO Student Support Services

TRIO Student Support Services is a federally funded program that assists first generation and low-income and disabled college students to graduate with their bachelor’s degree within 6 years. TRIO SSS is one of eight TRIO programs which are federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. As of 2014 there are 1,027 TRIO SSS programs across the United States and the U.S. Territories serving the academic needs of 202,492 college students nationwide.

Our goal in TRIO SSS is to support and motivate college students who are first generation or low-income or have a disability to increase the college retention and graduation rates of all participants. TheTRIO SSS program at CSUF is a part of the Student Academic Services unit within the Division of Student Affairs.

The TRIO SSS program at CSUF is committed to serve 160 participants each year from the date they join TRIO SSS until they graduate. TRIO SSS will provide opportunities for academic development, assist with basic college requirements, foster an institutional climate supportive of low-income students, first generation college students, transfer students, and students with disabilities, and increase the number of students from underrepresented backgrounds who pursue graduate studies.
