The purpose of the TRIO program is to increase college retention and graduation rates for eligible students, and to foster a supportive climate.

Students may take advantage of:

  • College transfer assistance
  • financial aid assistance
  • fun cultural activities
  • career counseling
  • priority academic advisement
