TRIO SSS is here for you and your success

What is SSS?

Student Support Services is a federally funded TRIO program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. 

We provide services that help participants remain in college through graduation and develop their potential for success in post-secondary education.

Why join SSS?

With a proven track record of more than 40 years, SSS is committed to helping WVU Tech students successfully advance through graduation.

We evaluate individual needs and provide free one‐on‐one support services to more than 200 participants, helping to create successful and confident students and leaders.

In addition, we offer Peer Mentoring to our program participants.  Those program participants interested in a Peer Mentor can submit a request by clicking here.

Who is SSS for?

“Being a part of this program gives me the chance to meet other students who are in a similar boat and striving for the same goals that I am in life.”
- Dakota Smith, Senior
Civil Engineering Major

“I love how the program has tutors. I would not have the grade that I have in math if it wasn’t for my awesome tutor. I would not have gotten a tutor if TRIO Director Scott Robertson would not have talked me into it. Because as first, I felt ashamed because I feel like I should know this stuff. So, it was a self-conscious barrier that I had to get over.”
-McKenzie Simpson, Freshman
Forensic Investigation Major
