TRIO Programs - Student Support Programs

The TRiO Programs are Federally grant-funded outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide FREE services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRiO includes eight programs targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs.

TRiO funded departments are a part of Creighton’s Educational Opportunity Program division. Student Support Services is the second oldest of Creighton’s five TRiO programs. Creighton is also home to TRiO Upward Bound Classic, Upward Bound Math & Science, Talent Search, and Educational Opportunity Center

TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) offers academic, emotional, cultural, and limited financial support for Creighton’s eligible students who meet established Federal and program guidelines. Student Support Services’ academic and financial services assist participants with persisting year-to-year, maintaining good GPA standing, and graduating on-time. Enrolled participants receive academic advising, personal and career counseling, tutorial assistance, and assistance in applying for and understanding financial aid by participating in program requirements. A limited number of scholarships are issued based on program participation and unmet need.

The mission of Student Support Services is to surround students with a network of support, giving them the confidence and skills to succeed at Creighton and achieve in life!
