Next Step After Admittance to TRiO
Once admitted into the TRiO SSS Program, the participating student will be invited to attend a New Student Orientation or have a one-on-one session with their appointed SSS counselor.
Students are expected to be active in the program by meeting with their SSS counselor on a consistent basis (a minimum of three times each semester) and attending the provided programming services and activities.
Admission to the program is not guaranteed. Enrollment is limited; students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
