The TRIO-SSS offers advising and course selection assistance for participants. Participants are assigned a TRiO Retention Specialist, who will assist you with comprehensive academic coaching, course selection and enrollment, navigation of SHIP, information on career and majors, financial aid and financial literacy education, graduate school planning and campus resources. Academic coaching services in TRiO begin with an orientation and intake appointment where you will take assessments and work with your coach to develop an Individual Academic Success Plan (IASP). You will revisit this IASP at regular meetings during the semester and receive referrals to workshops, tutoring and campus programming by an academic coach.
TRiO provides workshops throughout the year on topics such as adjusting to college, study skills, time management, campus resources, information on financial aid and literacy, Standards of Academic Progress, the scholarship process, writing a research paper, resume writing, graduate school planning and many more.
TRIO provides tutoring services free to project participants. Tutors provide assistance in writing, math, and introductory level general education courses. Tutors may offer assistance in other areas depending on their expertise. Students enrolled in TRiO are expected to take advantage of this service. See Tutor Contact Information to book a tutor.
Armstrong-Student Support Services Project is a U.S. Department of Education TRiO Program and is supported from 2015-2020 by $232,263 in Federal funds each year.
