Project Description
Student Support Services-TRiO Program includes: instruction in basic study skills; one on one and group tutorial services; academic, financial, or personal advisement; assistance in securing admission and financial aid for continuous enrollment at the University of New Mexico to ultimately obtain their bachelor's degree; assistance in the encouragement, and facilitation of admission and financial aid for enrollment in graduate and professional programs; guidance on career options; mentoring and special services for students with limited English proficiency (LEP); and college scholarships.

The program provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. Student Support Services (SSS) projects also may provide grant aid to current SSS participants who are receiving Federal Pell Grants (# 84.063). The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants and help students make the transition from one level of higher education to the next.
