Applying for Admission to Student Support Services?
In order to be considered for participation in Student Support Services, you must be enrolled at USU main campus as a bachelor degree student. SSS serves 190 students annually. After you complete and submit this application it will be reviewed, and you will be contacted to inform you whether you are selected to interview. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Once the program has filled, remaining applicants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if space becomes available. Participation in the SSS program is selective and priority will be given to:
- Students who are both low-income and first-generation
- Low-income students with disabilities who require educational accommodation
- Alumni of other TRIO programs
- Students with educational histories reflecting a need for academic support
- Students who are motivated to make full use of TRIO services.
*Note: Students admitted to USU as associate degree candidates do not meet SSS grant objectives to assist in completion of bachelor’s degrees. Associate degree candidates are encouraged to apply to SSS upon transition to bachelor’s degree status, though exceptions may be considered on an individual basis.
If selected for an interview, you will be scheduled for an intake appointment with the SSS Director at which time your eligibility will be verified through documentation. Students accepted into the program agree to use SSS services, work diligently to remain in good academic standing, and plan to remain enrolled at USU through the completion of your bachelor’s degree.
