TRIO Programs

Two federally funded TRIO programs to empower and prepare students that are traditionally underserved in higher education: TRIO Student Support Services and TRIO STEM.

What is TRIO?

TRIO is a set of federally funded programs that supports and motivates first-generation, low-income students and students with disabilities throughout their college experience. Each year, TRIO programs at GRCC serve 600 students.

Through TRIO, we provide support that is unique to your needs, including: academic and financial guidance, tutoring, personal counseling and more to ensure you're on track to graduate and pursue your academic goals at a four-year college, or get started in your career.
