Spring 2021 Semester: A Note from the TRIO/Student Support Services Family

We hope that all of our students are doing well during this unprecedented time, and we want to ensure you that the TRIO staff are all working remotely to help you in any way we can. During the upcoming Spring 2021 semester, TRIO/SSS staff will continue working remotely to provide you the student centered services that we have provided for over 50 years. We encourage you to still schedule appointments through Starfish in order to register for the 2020-2021 school year.  Please feel free to contact your academic advisor, schedule a remote tutoring appointment, and schedule a remote meeting with your Success Coach! Please stay safe and stay healthy, and we look forward to starting a successful Spring 2021 semester!
