(November 21, 2017) - The TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) program at Hagerstown Community College recently recognized 65 students who were accepted into the program within the past year.

TRiO SSS is a unique program designed to assist first-generation and income-eligible students, and students with documented disabilities. As a federally funded program, TRiO SSS seeks to guide participants through their first two years of postsecondary education with the ultimate goal of graduation and transfer to a four-year university or entry into a chosen career. By providing various services and a support system, the program works to enable students to overcome any barriers they may face to achieve personal, academic, and financial success.

HCC’s TRiO SSS Program serves a total of 175 students per year. Program benefits include academic advising, tutoring, financial advising, college trips, cultural events, and workshops.
