TRiO services

Students enrolled in the TRiO Scholars Program are eligible for a range of services, such as tutoring and writing assistance. TRiO scholars may also take advantage of our computer lab, get help preparing for graduate school and develop improved study skills.

  • Tutoring and writing assistance services

    As a part of their academic success strategies, scholars work with trained tutors who provide up to three hours per week of individual tutoring in most lower division courses. We offer coaching for courses, one-on-one sessions and group study sessions.

    Requesting tutors early in the semester will improve chances of getting a tutor. Learn more about our tutoring services or get help with your writing.

  • Personal and academic counseling

    Each TRiO scholar plans for his or her academic success with an academic specialist. In a friendly and caring environment, scholars learn to make the academic system work for them by identifying areas needing improvement and by using project and campus services to reach their academic goals. Scholars team with staff members to coordinate assistance from other resources on campus.
