TRIO Student Support Services (SSS)


Richland College’s TRIO-Student Support Services (TRIO-SSS) Program (formerly known as SOAR) is a component of the federal TRIO programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Since 1993, we have assisted eligible students in achieving their academic pursuits by offering a number of customized academic components designed to increase college retention and graduation rates.

TRIO-Student Support Services delivers a variety of educational and individual support services to motivate and empower qualifying Thunderducks in their college experience.
