What if you could go to one office and get everything you need?
TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is your on-campus toolbox: you need it, we have it—or we can point you in the right direction. We know college can be confusing, but TRIO SSS is there every step of the way, from the first semester until graduation. All this, for free.
Check out some of the great services available to TRIO SSS participants:
That’s a lot—but we might have a few more tricks up our sleeve, like calculators, laptops, and textbooks you can access, and a fish tank, and Jake the mannequin. We maybe have a skeleton in a trunk. You know, for science.
Of course, we can’t do everything. Fortunately, we know Zane State like the back of our hand, so start with us, and we’ll get you where you need to go.
Our application is simple and short (we’re talking like 2 minutes). You can do it right now: fill it out, and we’ll check to see if you’re eligible. The main ways you can be eligible are related to your household income (we’ll grab info from the FAFSA you completed), your parents’ education level, and whether you have a documented disability. Think you’re not eligible? Just apply, and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
TRIO Student Support Services at Zane State College is 100% funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, with an annual budget of $261,888.00, to serve 144 students per academic year.
