Students socializing outside

TRiO/Student Support Services  is a program designed to work with students who are first generation college students and who meet federal income guidelines. Our goal is to help support your success at GRCC and transfer to the college/university of your choice. The program has been serving students at Grand Rapids Community College for over 30 years. 

We are funded by the US Department of Education and operate within the Student Success and Retention Division at Grand Rapids Community College. Learn more about TRiO.


The mission of Student Support Services (TRiO) is to promote learning, personal development, and retention for college students who are traditionally under-represented in, or under-prepared for, post-secondary education because of income, family educational background, or disability and facilitate their transfer process to a 4-year institution.
