TRiO Student Support Services

Welcome to TRiO Student Support Services!

The TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) program on the campus of Snead State Community College is an educational program funded by the United States Department of Education, whose goal is to graduate eligible students and prepare them for a post-baccalaureate education or career.

TRiO Student Support Services is committed to providing an academic, professional and personal support system that guides students to benefit from educational opportunities and achieve a greater quality of life. At present, the SSS Program is funded to serve 160 qualified students annually; therefore, working with a smaller population of students is what sets us apart from other resources on campus. Having more one-on-one time with students allows us to get to know the student better and provide personalized advising. TRiO Student Support Services serves to motivate and help students accomplish their goals by offering valuable support and services that will assist in student success and persistence towards graduation.

Students are among friends in the TRiO Students Support Services office. Our office is designed where students can enjoy a relaxing atmosphere while getting to know other classmates and a caring staff. A tutoring lab, computer lab, and study areas are also available to our students.

We sincerely want you, our participants, to have that extra help you need to obtain your goals and to get the best from your college experience. Our staff would also like to encourage you to become acquainted with the services we provide. Please take a moment to browse our pages to discover the valuable support available to qualified applicants.

Mission Statement
