TRiO - Student Support Services is a federally funded program created in 1968 to help students stay in college and graduate. Students can turn to TRiO-SSS for services including tutoring, counseling and peer mentoring as they reach their educational and career goals.
Since its inception at Paul Smith's, TRiO - Student Support Services has contributed to a significant increase in student retention at the college.
The TRiO-SSS at Paul Smith's College is completely funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Our most recent five-year grant, for $1.2 million, serves 160 students a year.
