TRIO - Student Support Services is Portland State University’s federally funded academic and personal support services for college students. It is designed to provide special assistance to those who have traditionally had limited access to a college education. Specifically, students who are low-income, who have a disability, or whose parents did not graduate with a bachelor’s degree can receive assistance from SSS if they have a need for academic support. The program provides academic counseling, financial literacy, scholarship assistance, skill development workshops, study spaces, computer lab, writing assistance, and referrals that are designed to help the students achieve their educational goals.
