How do I apply?

TRIO staff member and student

To be eligible for TRIO TS a student must:

  • Be a first generation college-bound student. A student is a first generation college student if neither of their parents have received a four-year college degree
  • Meet low-income eligibility guidelines as determined by the Federal Office of TRIO Programs in the U.S. Department of Education
  • Attend one of our target schools
  • Have and maintain a minimum 2.00 GPA for High School, 2.50 GPA for Middle School
  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States

*You must fill-out and turn-in a completed TRIO TS application to be considered for the program.

What if I don’t meet the eligibility requirements?

Students who demonstrate a need for TRIO TS services, but who do not meet the first two requirements above may still be admitted into the program.
