TRiO Academic Services helps to retain and graduate
low-income students, and individuals with disabilities.
Academic support is offered through individual and group
sessions with professional staff members as well as in a learning
lab environment staffed by peer tutors/mentors. Academic support
classes are offered in study skills, math, science, leadership, and basic
computer skills. The learning lab provides peer tutors/mentors, math
and science professionals, and computer/internet access.
Interested students are encouraged to contact the program early in
their academic careers to see if they qualify for services. To qualify

of Education grant.
