The TRIO (Talent, Resources, Initiative, Opportunity) Program is a federally funded program that provides free support services to eligible students. To be eligible for the program, a student must have academic need as defined by the Federal government and meet one of the following criteria:
- Neither parent graduated from a four-year college;
- The student is receiving financial aid; or
- The student has a documented learning or physical disability.
Students who are accepted into the program work with the TRIO staff's counselors, and advisors to facilitate their graduation from BCC with an Associate's Degree and transfer to a four-year college.
The TRIO staff is well aware of the challenges students face while attending college. Work, family responsibilities and academic challenges may feel overwhelming at first. In TRIO, we will help you to improve your grades, stay in school, transfer to a four year college, receive your certificate or Associate Degree, or transition to your career.
More information on the benefits belonging to the TRIO Program is available at the TRIO Office & Learning Center (Second Flr., Rm. F-237) The TRIO Office provides "one-on-one" support services to help eligible students develop an educational plan.
