You can read all about TRIO Student Support Services on the Learning Resource Center website. The link is underneath the "Tutoring" drop-down menu.
In brief, TRIO is a program that provides eligible students with one-on-one assistance, including tutoring in academic subjects and mentoring. You can apply online or by visiting the Academic Support Center in the LRC. Eligibility involves being one of these three:
- A first-generation college student (e.g. neither of your parents have college degrees)
- lower income
- possessing a disability
Remember, you only need to be one of those three, not all three.
