TRIO Student Support Services helps students with high academic need successfully finish college while minimizing their debt. Partnering with us can demonstrate to the student that we are all advocating for their success and fulfill the Student-Focused mission of North Dakota State University.
Funded through a federal grant at NDSU, TRIO SSS serves only 350 students per year. Specifically, the program assists first generation college students, students with disabilities, and students who meet an income criteria. As we are unable to reach all qualified students on campus, TRIO SSS relies on faculty and staff like you to refer students to our program. Our office has several free services for eligible students; these include one-to-one tutoring, peer mentoring, grant aid, etc. If you know a student who would benefit from joining our program, please click here.
Please note, we understand that identifying eligible students is difficult and ask that you refer any students you believe may benefit from our services. Once referred, we will determine student eligibility and act accordingly. To follow-up on a referral, please contact the Director of Student Support Services.
If you would like to visit with TRIO SSS, meet with a TRIO Education Specialist, or have an Education Specialist visit your department/ class, please submit a request to meet with a Student Support Services representative here.
