TRIO Holds for Spring 2021

TRIO SSP will be placing hold on student accounts in the next week or so. This hold will be on all TRIO student accounts until the student has completed their semester needs assessment and meeting with a TRIO advisor. This hold is not punitive, but simply a reminder to complete your student meeting.

It is our hope that having holds placed earlier in the semester will encourage students to schedule and complete their meeting(s) well in advance of priority registration beginning and open the priority registration opportunity to more TRIO SSP students.

During your meeting we will discuss how classes are going and resources you may need. To maximize our conversation, we would like you to attend your courses at least a couple of times before you have your TRIO semester meeting.

Steps to completing your TRIO semester requirements:

  1. Schedule your semester meeting with TRIO here: https://bit.ly/39nb0kB
  2. Once you schedule your meeting, complete your student needs assessment: https://bit.ly/35tB2ll
  3. Before your meeting takes place, you will need to have your academic advising appointment with your major advisor. Make this appointment ASAP, as many advisor schedules fill up quickly.
  4. Have meeting with TRIO advisor, discuss needs assessment and share recommended classes from your academic advisor for Fall 2021.

****Your Student Needs Assessment and meeting with your major academic advisor should take place BEFORE your TRIO SSP semester meeting****

*Graduating seniors should also be completing a needs assessment and one last semester meeting with TRIO before they graduate*

*If you cannot make a 30-minute meeting work in your schedule, contact your TRIO advisor to discuss completing this meeting via email*

MLK Day Celebrations

Each year, the MLK Celebration Planning Committee selects a theme based on the life and legacy of Dr. King that will be represented across the various celebration activities held within the community. This year’s theme is “None of Us is Free until All of Us Are Free.”
