Description:

The TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program works with students to enhance their academic performance, increase retention and graduation rates, and help prepare them for careers after graduation. SSS has a solid record of success — the average graduation rate (more than 70 percent) for SSS students at Illinois is higher than the six-year average graduation rate for underrepresented students campuswide. (Source: DMI. See "Campus Totals.")

The program creates a vital link between participating students and University resources. It was created to encourage students to pursue academic excellence, persist in their collegiate studies and earn their degrees. Designed to help first-generation students and students with limited financial resources, in particular, the program provides one-on-one assistance in the transition from high school to college and from the students' freshman year to graduation.

Services offered through SSS include a combination of academic tutoring; individualized counseling; financial literacy programs; exposure to cultural and academic events and programs; a connection to mentoring opportunities; assistance with career development; and help with course selection, navigating financial aid programs, finding scholarships, and applying to graduate or professional schools.

SSS is one component of the federal initiative known as TRIO programs. The Student Support Services program is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education and through state and private funds.
