What Is TRIO?
TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally-funded program designed to support the successful completion of undergraduate studies for its eligible participants.
Students who participate in a TRIO SSS program are either first-generation college students (neither parent has a bachelor’s degree), students with disabilities, or income eligible (basically pell grant eligible).
At CCA we have TWO SSS programs, our traditional (working with 160 students) and an English as a Second Language (ESL- working with 140 students) program. The ESL program is one of only 16 programs of its kind across the United States!
