TRIO Student Support Services (SWCC)

TRIO Student Support Services (SWCC) We provide SWCC students with services to enhance student learning, facilitate personal development, & expand academic opportunities.

We are here to give support to students who are first generation, low-income, or have a disability. We provide the opportunity for our students to participate in First Year Experience, information workshops, transfer trips, tutoring, and much more!

Mission: “The TRIO-Student Support Services program at Southwestern Community College enhances the institution’s commitment to first-generation, low-income students and students with disabilities by encouraging students to strive toward their academic and personal goals. SSS provides support services designed to increase retention, graduation, and transfer rates.”
