Providing well-rounded support to qualifying students
For some students, a college education is a dream that might seem out of reach. At Waubonsee, you can make your dream a reality, and our TRIO/Student Support Services (TRIO/SSS) team can help.
The TRIO/SSS program provides holistic academic, career, financial literacy, tutoring and cultural events, and provides well-rounded support for our students. And since TRIO/Student Support Services is among the federally-funded TRIO programs, all services are provided at no cost.... which means participation is free!
What is TRIO/SSS?
We are a grant-funded program providing well-rounded support for our students. All TRIO/SSS students fall into at least one of the following three categories:
Be a first-generation college student (your parents or parent you reside with, or legal guardian(s) did not receive a four-year college degree);
Qualify as a low-income student;
Have a visible/invisible disability protected by Federal law.
In addition, eligible Waubonsee students will:
Have a need for academic support services
