Services

TRiO Student Support Services offers to eligible students services which are designed to help you be successful at BSU, graduate, and even go on to post-graduate school.

Advising and Counseling

Counseling and academic advising provided by TRiO/SSS staff are highly individualized. Students are assisted with admissions procedures, financial aid information, course and program planning, registration, career directions and personal concerns.

Tutoring

TRiO provides free one-on-one tutoring to all participants. Tutoring offers you a way to increase your confidence and academic skills, boost your GPA, and become more engaged in your classes. You can meet with a tutor for up to three hours per subject per week, and you determine the time and place! Whether you need one session to figure out D2L, or on-going sessions through-out the semester to keep up with your classes, we can help. Signing up for a tutor is easy and confidential - just see the Tutoring Coordinator to get started.

Mentoring

Our faculty can set you up with another BSU faculty or community member if you would like to learn more about possible careers in your field. Student mentoring is also available for new students who want help "learning the ropes" from an experienced TRiO/SSS student. See a faculty member to request a mentor!

Computer Lab

SSS participants can use the computer lab/study lounge located right in our department. Meet with your tutor, type up and print your assignments, or just relax and surf the web between classes. The lab is open during office hours only. Need help learning your way around the computer? Just ask! The Tutoring Coordinator will be happy to help.
