Advising

The primary goal of BGSU's TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) advising is to assist participating students in achieving graduation from BGSU.

Advising and coaching is available by appointment or students can drop in from 8a.m. - 5p.m. Evening appointments may be arranged.

ACADEMIC ADVISING AND COACHING

Participants are provided individual academic advising.  Program advisors monitor students’ progress on a weekly, monthly and per semester basis.  Students’ academic needs are assessed at the initial meeting with their program advisor.  All activities are designed to ensure that participants are retained and graduate from the University.

Financial Aid Coaching and Assistance

TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) advisors may help member students with information about Federal student financial aid programs and benefits as well as resources for locating public and private scholarships.  TRIO SSS advisors can provide coaching and guidance regarding aid applications and financial education such as budgeting, credit cards, and paying for graduate school.  They may also help students navigate their financial aid packages to better understand their awards and financial aid policies.
