The TRiO Student Support Services program furthers the Bellevue College Mission of educational excellence and equal access by providing first generation college students with limited income and/or disabilities a multiplicity of academic and personal support services: study skills development to achieve academic success, tutoring to master course content, and intensive academic and personal advisement to build confidence and promote student success.
These interconnected services advance the following goals:
- » Increase persistence and graduation rates of eligible students by advocating for and implementation of proven student success components;
- » Increase transfer rates of eligible students from two-year to four-year institutions through the support and encouragement of seamless transition.
- » Foster an institutional climate supportive of the success of the SSS targeted population through appropriate services.
