TRiO - - something about three? Some kind of helping service? I saw this name at Western Kentucky University while I was there, but I didn't know what it was until today.
What is TRiO?
TRiO is a no-traditional support service for nontraditional students. It is also known as SSS/Trio. It is under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Education. It supplies help for people getting their GED and people in college.
Some of the services they provide include free help with FAFSA applications, career counseling and information, advising, and more, all for free.
Some programs TRiO is involved with include Veterans Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math-Science, The Child Care Access Means Parents in School program (CCAMPIS), Talent Search, and Educational Opportunity Centers.
Is your school a member of TRiO? You can call the your local school and find out. Some places that offer TRiO services are called Educational Opportunity Centers.
