Student Support Services

What is TRIO Student Support Services?

TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is part of the TRIO programs created to promote educational access for those who have been traditionally underrepresented in higher education nationally.  SSS programs provide advising, tutoring, and academic support.  There are also two scholarships and opportunities exclusively for participating TRIO students.



A student is eligible to participate in BGSU's SSS program if he/she meets at least one of the following criteria:

  • Is a first generation college student (custodial parents did not complete a bachelor’s degree)
  • Income that fits the requirements determined by the Federal Income Guidelines
  • Has a documented disability with the BGSU Accessibility Services office.


If you are interested in participating in the program and meet the eligibility requirements, please complete the TRIO SSS application. For more information regarding TRIO SSS, please visit us at 292 Hayes Hall or call 419-372-2677.
