TRiO Student Support Services

What is TRiO SSS?

Striving for Student Success

TRiO Student Support Services at HCC is an exciting program designed to help students just like you! If you have a low income, are a first-generation student, or have a disability, we are here to help. As a federally funded TRiO SSS program, we provide extra support to a select group of students to help them achieve their personal, educational, and financial goals.

We offer:

  • Tutoring
  • Goal Setting and Academic Advising
  • Cultural Events
  • Computers and TRiO Study Center
  • Academic Skills Workshops
  • Life Skills Workshops
  • Transfer and Career Planning Workshops
  • Information and Resources for Financial Aid
  • FAFSA Assistance
  • Trips to 4-Year Schools
  • Induction and Recognition Ceremonies
  • Grant Aid

Students admitted as TRiO SSS participants must be pursuing an Associate's degree or be enrolled in a certificate program at Hagerstown Community College.

You can apply online, visit our offices located in the Student Center, Room 131B or call Laura Barnes at 240-500-2659.
