The Feather River College TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) program strives to increase the success of students who are low-income, the first person in their family to go to college, and/or have a disability.

The goals of SSS are to keep students in college as well as increase the number that earn an associate degree (or certificate) and transfer to a four-year college. To assist our students in meeting these goals, the program offers FREE tutoring, academic advising, priority registration, FAFSA assistance, financial literacy workshops, transfer workshops and trips, student success workshops, cultural events, and scholarships.

Student Support Services is one of several Federal TRiO programs that provide educational opportunities designed to motivate and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Student Support Services was created in 1968 as part of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and is fully funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
