TRiO Model

Academic Excellence

Advising and Registration - TRiO students have a team of both peer and career staff that provide academic advising support. Students are guided through the steps of registering by trained Peer Advisors and receive four quarters of priority registration.

Classes and Seminars - TRiO students have access to preparatory classes in math, writing and science. Students also complete a transitional course in study skills and time management to enhance their academic achievement and personal success.

Tutoring - TRiO facilitates the use of academic and tutoring resources to enhance student learning. The program provides individual tutoring for subjects not offered by the Student Academic Success Center.

Community Building

Learning Communities - TRiO students live in the residence halls during the three week summer bridge portion of the STEP program prior to their first quarter of enrollment. The summer bridge experience fosters learning communities around academic disciplines as well as personal and professional interests. 

Community Activities - TRiO Peer Advisors host quarterly social activities to facilitate relationship building within the TRiO community. A popular event among TRiO students are workshops where students learn about and practice proper etiquette while bonding over a shared meal. 

Financial Empowerment

Workshops and Seminars - TRiO offers students access to financial skill building workshops and seminars. Additionally, students participate in a financial reality fair where they apply learned concepts to real life situations. 

Educational Modules - TRiO students complete online personal financial education modules to build skills for immediate and long term financial success.
