TRiO Student Support Services
We are better TOGETHER! This page will serve as a connection point for Gavilan College's TRIO Student Support Services to stay connected–to stay TOGETHER–as we weather the Coronavirus. Bookmark this page so that you can stay up-to-date with all that is happening in the Gavilan College TRIO community.
TRiO is a federally funded program designed to empower first-generation, low-income, and disabled Gavilan College students as they prepare to obtain a two-year degree and/or transfer to a four-year university.
Currently for the Fall 2020 semester we are not taking any new TRIO applications.

TRIO Student Support Services Update
Every five years Gavilan College's TRIO SSS must apply, via the Department of Education, for a new TRIO grant. This past competition, our federal grant renewal application for the TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program, a program which has been at the college for over 20 years, was not supported. As a result, the TRIO SSS program will be discontinued starting on December 30, 2020.
Over the semester we have been busy transitioning our 170 students to different campus resources. Many of our students have already made connection to counseling services with other campus centers or general counseling.
The earliest the college can apply again for grant funding is 2025.
