TRIO Student Success Program—A Unique Opportunity
Joining the Boise State TRIO Student Success Program (SSP) at Boise State University can be life-changing. Highly motivated students from diverse backgrounds are admitted to SSP and offered a variety of tools to help them become successful while pursuing a four-year degree. College is an exciting opportunity for students, but it can also present unique challenges.
How will I adjust to college course work?
- Where can I find a support system?
- How do I balance working part-time and being a student?
- Who do I ask when I have questions?
As a SSP student, you are part of a community of students who have both asked and discovered the answers to those very same questions.
How It Works: From the first day of your fall semester, you are assigned an academic advisor you can meet with regularly. New students are also matched with a Peer Mentor and offered an array of student engagement opportunities on and off campus. One former SSP student described her experience in the program:
“I started college with no idea what I was doing or where to go for help. Becoming acquainted with the staff, services, and resources at SSP introduced me to a safe, friendly place to go to ask for help, study, learn new skills, and overall, become a better, more successful student. I have achieved more than I ever imagined I could and graduated with a 3.66 GPA.”
SSP builds a community for high-achieving, underrepresented students to ensure academic success at Boise State University and beyond! For questions about the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
