TRiO Student Support Services

The Student Services Division is to design and implement support services and programs for students which enable them to meet their short-term and long-term educational or training goals.

What is TRiO Student Support Services?

TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded program that provides eligible participants with academic advising, tutorial assistance, financial literacy, career preparation, financial aid assistance, and personal support to graduate from JSCC and assist them in transferring to a four year college.

This program seeks to support students who have the potential to complete a college degree. Our focus is to ensure that students have a realistic chance to persist in college, and within three years, graduate with an associate degree and transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Transfer Counseling

The transfer process can be very confusing and time consuming. Some common concerns are:

  • What are my chances of transferring into a 4-year university?
  • What classes should I take to transfer to a 4-year university with an Associates Degree?
  • What are the benefits of getting my Associates Degree?
  • What are the benefits of transferring to a 4-year college?
  • What are my financial aid options?
  • What are my housing options?
  • When should I apply? How do I apply?

The Program Counselor’s goal is to help you navigate the transfer process as smoothly as possible, so please come by and schedule an appointment…the sooner the better!

Campus Tours answer questions about a university that you are interested in attending. The tour gives a more “real” understanding of the school, campus, etc. The visit works like this:

  • We take JSCC transportation to the campus of your choice.
  • Attend a campus tour that allows you to check out the university environment and lay out of the campus.
  • It is possible to set up appointments during the visit with the college of your choice to gain a better understanding of the program that you’re interested in.
  • A University admissions official may be available to answer questions you have regarding the application/transfer process.

Please contact the Program Counselor for more information on transferring to a 4-year university or college and campus tours:
