CSN TRIO Student Support Services


Program Type: Higher Education

The TRiO Student Support Services program is funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. We provide guidance, advocacy and academic support to low income, first generation and disabled students seeking to earn an Associate’s degree and/or transfer to a four year institution. Services are offered within a very intensive, integrated and individualized contact system that encourages participants to develop persistence, self-discipline, responsibility and confidence. Fostering of these lifelong learning skills, within the context of a learning community, enables academic, personal and professional success. All services provided to participants in the program are free.
