About TRIO Student Support Services (SSS)

TRIO SSS serves students at the University of Iowa who demonstrate academic need and are first generation, or low-income, or have a verified disability. TRIO SSS is much more than a tutoring program, and it is expected that participants will be actively engaged in the program throughout their undergraduate studies.

What to Expect

TRIO SSS participants benefit from:

  • Individualized coaching in all facets of the university experience
  • 1 semester hour course every semester to aid in their college success. Topics include academic success, financial literacy, career exploration and professional development, diversity/equity/inclusion, leadership development, and life skills.
  • Connections with students from similar backgrounds
  • Individual and small group tutoring

How to Prepare

If you are an active participant and want to request a tutor:

  • Complete a tutor request form on the TRIO SSS website
  • When matched with your tutor, contact them within 24 hours
  • You are allotted one hour of tutoring per week, per course
