TRiO Student Support Services

Mission

Grounded in the civil rights movement, TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) strives to ensure access and equal opportunity education for University of Minnesota students who are first-generation in college, low-income, students with disabilities, or students for whom English is not their first language. Through inclusive and accessible services, including academic support, counseling, teaching, and advocacy, the SSS program seeks to remove institutional and cultural barriers, foster a climate that values the social and cultural capital of our students, and promote retention to graduation.

All students in TRIO SSS will have the opportunity to participate in the President's Emerging Scholars program. Through this program, students are eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship during their first year and again in their fourth year if students are on track to graduate and have participated in the program. Most required first-year components of the President's Emerging Scholars program align directly with TRIO SSS program requirements.

TRIO SSS includes College English Transitions, a first-year sequences of courses offered to freshmen for whom English is not their first language.
