We help you create long-range and quarterly class schedules to complete your degree and prepare you for transfer. University visitations are also available.
A Plan for Success
You can find the best way to fit your strengths, weaknesses and particular living situation into an individualized plan for success.
Your TRiO counselor will take the time to listen to your concerns and help you find effective solutions. They are familiar with the new demands and unfamiliar challenges that college often brings.
Financial Aid Assistance
Your TRiO counselor will help you understand the financial aid and scholarship process and serve as advocates within the system. Additional special funding may be available to eligible students.
You will be provided with "in-depth" assistance that is not to be found elsewhere on campus.
