University of vermont

The TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program at University of Vermont (UVM) serves 230 undergraduate students who are first-in-their-family to earn a four year degree, from a limited-income background, or have a disability. UVM's SSS has operated for over 40 years at UVM and supports participants through mentoring, tutoring, free printing, priority registration, and cap and gown lending. Additionally, participants can choose to take part in workshops and events to learn about financial literacy, study skills, leadership opportunities and managing stress. Last August, UVM's SSS launched its first Early Move-In Program where participants were able to move-in 24 hours early to meet peers and to acclimate to campus.
