TRIO Programs

SDSU offers two TRIO programs that support first generation and income eligible students in college access, preparation and success. Both programs provide proactive support systems that increase the probability of student success and graduation from college.

Student Support Services

TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is designed to provide a supportive community for students in transition to college. Our enthusiastic staff provide various support services to promote each participant’s personal, academic and professional achievement. These supports include advising, academic resources, peer mentoring, career planning and involvement opportunities.  

Upward Bound

This program prepares high school students for success in college. Upward Bound helps students by focusing early on developing academic skills and motivation. Counseling, as well as social and recreational activities, expand and encourage confidence our program participants.

*TRIO Programs are a set of college opportunity programs that advocate for college access and success.  Each program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and participants must meet the eligibility requirements following federal guidelines.
