The mission of the Student Support Services/TRIO program is to provide and coordinate a variety of educational support services to students who are first generation, students who meet federal low-income guidelines, and/or students with disabilities. The purpose of the program is to increase college retention and graduation and transfer rates for eligible participants.

The philosophy of the SSS/TRiO program is to provide premier service and support to students in their pursuit of obtaining a post-secondary education in a non-threatening, inviting and fun environment. Through one-on-one connections we help students uncover their potential to achieve both educational and personal success.

Student Support Services/TRIO participants receive intensive support, tutoring, and mentoring. In addition, the program offers academic advising, transfer trips, cultural trips, orientation to college, leadership activities, and a variety of technology equipment. The program is designed to assist eligible Richland students graduate from Richland with a two-year transferrable degree and transfer to a four-year institution. The TRiO program is a federally funded student engagement grant. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, TRiO provides educational support to students who currently meet federal government low-income guidelines, first generation students (neither parent has a bachelor's degree) and to students with a documented disability. All applications must include documentation of income and, if applicable, documentation of disability. All services are free to SSS/TRiO participants.
