Trio/SSS provides academic and individual education plans to students geared toward a four-year university transfer. Personal counseling is available to students who wish to discuss concerns that are not school related.
Trio/SSS offers workshops to improve academic skills, personal skills, and career development. Workshops are scheduled throughout the semester on a variety of topics. Past workshops have included study skills, money management, internship opportunities, and scholarship searching.
Each semester, students are able to sign-up for university field-trips to a variety of campuses around California. This gives students the opportunity to see and experience campuses in which they are interested and perhaps explore others. Typically, each visit includes an admissions presentation and a tour along with lunch on campus. All transportation costs and meals are covered by the Trio/SSS program. Below is a list of campus visits/cultural field trips offered throughout the academic year.
It is also the goal of the Trio/SSS program to expose students to new experiences and broaden their knowledge of our cultural surroundings. Each year we visit sites such as museums, theaters, performances, and other areas of interest.
Trio/SSS has its own computer lab to help students gain or improve essential skills in areas such as word processing and developing research skills. We have printing access. Internet access is available for various online courses offered at LACC. In addition, we loan graphing and scientific calculators out for students in need.
Participants in the Trio/SSS program can make appointments with the Program Advisor to obtain individual assistance with their admissions and/or financial aid applications.
Trio/SSS students should each have an email address to receive regular email updates on information regarding the campus, university transfer, scholarships, and educational opportunities. Imagine getting a scholarship or an internship. Many students have benefitted from our ability to easily communicate this information to them. Opportunities and important information are only a click away!
