The TRiO Student Support Services (TRiO/SSS) programSSSTRiO

helps first-generation and low-income students with a demonstrated academic need overcome barriers to their dreams.


TRiO is a student support service available to a minimum of 186 CCC students each year.  Students must apply and be accepted into this program.   To qualify students must be enrolled at least 3/4 time and meet one or more of  the following criteria:


1.  Be a first generation student ( neither parent is a 4-year college graduate)

2.  Meet federal low income guidelines.

3.  Be enrolled  in a CCC program of study leading to an associate's degree

or academic transfer.

4.  Have a documented physical or learning disability.


TRiO Application


After qualifying, TRiO/SSS students will become part of a select group of individuals until graduation or transfer to another college, as long as students actively participate in the program and follow the expectations.


As a TRiO student, you will be assigned a TRiO coordinator to help you succeed in college.  You and your coordinator will jointly develop an individual academic plan (IAP).  We promote student development by providing opportunities to grow personally, socially, and academically.


Contact the TRiO coordinator on the CCC campus you plan to attend to learn more about qualifying for these services. Call toll-free to all locations at 1-877-222-0780 and ask for the TRiO office.


TRiO/Student Support Services is funded under the U.S. Department of Education and the Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
