About TRIO

trio-studentsTRIO is a 100% federally funded program at Jackson College.  Our main goal is to assist TRIO students in graduating from Jackson College with a certificate, degree, and/or transfer to a four-year institution of higher education.  The TRIO department also strives to ensure that students are well rounded academically and personally.  This means that they are involved on campus, in the community, and within the TRIO program.

TRIO offers a support system for students who may not otherwise have one, with services that focus on supporting the whole student, beyond just academic performance.

The TRIO Student Support Service project at Jackson College is 100% funded by the U.S. Department of Education, with an annual budget of $232,265.
