What is TRIO?

The Student Support Services Program is a federally funded TRIO program designed to promote the success and retention of non-traditional students. Once students are admitted, they remain participants in the program until they graduate and/or transfer to a four-year college or university. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, TRIO programs are educational opportunity outreach programs designed to motivate and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

What We Have to Offer as the TRiO Program?

The Student Support Services (TRiO) Program at Norwalk Community College prides itself on being a “One Stop Shop” for many of our students. Here are some of our services offered:

Involvement Opportunities

Club TRiO!


The TRiO club is a community service based club that allows students to raise awareness about the needs of our community to the Norwalk Community College campus. Not only do we spread awareness to and about our community, we spread it worldwide. Our students grow personally, socially, and academically when exposed to these needs.

(Promoting awareness through activities while supporting academic, social and personal success for our students.) 

Social Events & Programming

Participants of the TRiO Program will have an opportunity to get to know one another and to get to know the Support Staff during major events each semester.  Join us in the Fall for the Welcome Back Reception and again the Spring for the End of Year Celebration when we celebrate your achievements!
