TRIO Programs

If you are the first in your family to go to college or fit other eligibility requirements, you may benefit from TRIO at TCC.

About TRIO

The TRIO Programs are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRIO includes eight programs targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities, to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to a bachelor's degree and beyond.

For more information on TRIO please visit Federal TRIO programs.

TCC TRIO Programs

TCC offers two TRIO programs, both funded by the U.S. Department of Education:

The TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers (EOC) program provides you with counseling and information on college admissions—to TCC or another college or university. The program also provides services to improve the financial and economic literacy of participants.  

The TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program provides students who have already been admitted to TCC with opportunities for academic development, assistance with basic college requirements and support while working toward the successful completion of their college degrees.
