College Trips/Info

College Trips
We encourage SSS participants to continue their education at a four-year college or university. To aide your transition, SSS staff will arrange college visits at least once per semester in order to allow participants to become familiar with various college environments.

TRIO advisors can help you navigate the transfer process to a 4-year university or college.
