PUTTING STUDENTS FIRST IN THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE

Hillsborough Community College Student Support Services is a federally funded program serving 200 students per year. It is designed to serve low income, first generation (neither parent received a bachelor's degree) and disabled students.
The program provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. The goal of TRIO Student Support Services is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants and help students make the transition from one level of higher education to the next.

The SSS program provides a wide range of individual services and opportunities including:
(1) Academic advising, tutoring, career exploration, and assistance with technology.
(2) Assistance with the financial aspects of college, including applying for Financial Aid, exploring scholarships and financial literacy workshops.
(3) Cultural Diversity and Enrichment Activities - Theatrical and musical performances, visits to museums and historical sites, community forums and campus events.
(4) Visits to 4-year colleges and universities and assistance with the transfer process.
