What is TRiO Student Support Services?
The Student Support Services (SSS) program—one of the federal TRIO programs—was authorized in 1968 by the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1101a), as amended. The goal of SSS is to increase the postsecondary persistence and graduation rates of low-income students, first-generation college students (i.e., students whose parents have not received a bachelor’s degree), and students with disabilities. All students in the SSS program are enrolled in postsecondary education, meet at least one of these eligibility criteria (low-income status, first-generation status, or disability status), and exhibit academic need.
