TRIO Student Support Services: Partnering with your student for their success at NAU and beyond!
For nearly 35 years, Northern Arizona University has offered the TRIO Student Support Services program on the Flagstaff campus. Student Support Services
(SSS) is funded in part by the US Department of Education in order to increase college retention and graduation rates for students who have financial needs, are first-generation college students, or have a documented disability.
Throughout their participation in the program, students will receive individual mentoring from our peer and professional staff members who can guide them in transitioning to the university and Flagstaff community. Specifically, we assist first-year students by providing the following core services:
- Academic support and tutoring
- Assistance with course selection and career planning
- Education/guidance to improve financial literacy
- Information and assistance to apply for financial aid and/or scholarships
- Assistance in applying for admission to graduate and professional school
Each semester, students in the SSS program benefit from multiple individual mentoring meetings and ongoing access to staff members—virtually and in person. We also offer opportunities for students to attend educational workshops, cultural activities, community service projects, and leadership retreats—all at no cost to the student. Additionally, we offer the opportunity to earn a $600 grant after a semester of full participation in our program.
