TRIO Programs

Congress established a series of programs to help low-income Americans enter college, graduate and move on to participate fully in America's economic and social life. These programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and are referred to as the TRIO Programs (initially just three programs). While student financial aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRIO programs help students overcome class, social and cultural barriers to higher education.

The TRIO program at The University of North Carolina at Pemboke is Student Support Services.
