What is TRIO Student Support Services (SSS)?

TRIO SSS is a community of support and free services for students. We provide each of our students with resources and guidance to encourage the successful completion of a certificate or degree and beyond.

What can TRIO SSS do for me?

The dedicated and caring staff at SSS can provide you with personal one-on-one support through individualized academic advising, course selection, financial aid assistance, tutoring and workshops to enhance personal development and academic progress. We also specialize in transfer advising, helping you to plan to attend a 4-year college upon your graduation from SEARK. We travel with our students to several 4-year campuses and host an annual cultural experience trip as well. All services are free for eligible students.
