As a part of a family of programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education to promote college achievement for traditionally disadvantaged students, TRIO Student Support Services at CSUSM is committed to increasing the retention and graduation of its participants. The program is designed to assist first-generation (neither parent has completed a four-year degree), low-income, and students with disabilities.
Services provided by the program include counseling, tutoring, community service experiences, financial literacy guidance, and assistance in applying for graduate school and more.
However, many of our students are also facing financial difficulties. Your donation will provide funds for services not currently covered by the program, including emergency scholarships, cultural enrichment opportunities, funding for books and school supplies, funds for temporary shelter, student professional development, fees for exams, some tuition costs and resources for meals for those who are experiencing food insecurity.
More information on the TRIO SSS program is available on the US Department of Education website
