Greetings Bettina, the TRiO programs I have ran have been highly successful in meeting graduation objectives. We are housed at a 2 year university however we send students to any college they desire. It is our responsibility to endure they they not only get into that college/university but stay and matriculate to the next grade level and graduate. This past year I was required to graduate and send to college 68% of our seniors however we successfully sent 72% of our seniors on to post-secondary. in the SSS program students may be supported financially, however in both programs students are allowed to attend college tours free of charge. i am a product of TRiO so I know first had that TRiO WORKS!.
