Transferring can be an exciting but complex process. It involves exploring different options, deciding which colleges are the best fit, applying to those colleges, figuring out how to pay for them, and more. Often students try to navigate this process on their own – which can feel overwhelming!

But, when a student joins TRIO SSS at Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) they have a TRIO Academic Counselor who will help them every step of the way. They receive support, information, and encouragement to help them transfer successfully.

Similarly, TRIO students receive tons of support identifying and applying for scholarships! Whether applying to STCC Foundation Scholarships, receiving help with writing scholarship essays, or learning how to find and apply for outside scholarships, TRIO SSS Academic Counselors provide this assistance. So many students do not apply for scholarships because they think they will not receive one or that it is too much work.

With TRIO SSS, students realize they are indeed qualified and that they will receive assistance in finding and applying for scholarships. On top of that, eligible TRIO students can apply for and receive a TRIO SSS Grant Aid scholarship of at least $1,000!

The support TRIO SSS students receive in achieving their transferring and scholarship goals begins the day they join TRIO and continues until they graduate from STCC. These supports are just two of the amazing services TRIO SSS provides. TRIO SSS also provides tutoring, advising, career counseling, educational workshops, assistance with FAFSA applications, and more!
