TRIO Mission Statement

It is TRiO’s mission to help low-income, first generation, and/or disabled students graduate from university.  This is achieved through the implementation of an all-encompassing approach to the “college experience”. TRiO assists students by providing academic counseling and tutoring, helping them to become financially literate, offering guidance on pursuance of a graduate degree, and providing advice to students when they experience day-to-day, non-academic issues.

Earning a college degree is difficult. Becoming a TRiO student can make the difference in getting to graduation.

First Time Participants

As required by the U.S. Department of Education, all first-time applicants to TRiO must submit a copy of their own (if considered independent) or their parents'/guardians' (if considered dependent) federal tax return for the prior year.  Applications cannot be processed without this documentation.

Please call TRiO at (315) 267-2347 if you have questions about this application requirement.
