What does TRIO offer?
TRIO provides a sense of support and place of belonging for students! All participants are assigned to a counselor or advisor who will be their "go-to person" throughout their time at LFCC. All of the TRIO services and activities are absolutely free to students who become active program participants. These services include, but are not limited to:,
Counseling and Advising
TRIO counselors help students map out their time at LFCC. Counselors can advise for course selection, and can assist students with registering for their courses each semester. Counselors serve as a student's "cheerleader" and are available to answer any LFCC-related questions, or simply to talk with students about any additional concerns they may have. If TRIO counselors are unable to meet specific needs, they will refer students to other available resources and individuals.
Tutoring is provided for all students in most curriculum-based subjects on an open, walk-in basis. You can access the schedule for tutoring here.
Students transferring to four-year colleges or universities are offered guidance in curriculum selection, admissions application and financial aid. Students also have the opportunity to visit 4-year colleges to experience their campus and speak with an admissions representative about any specific questions. .
In addition to academic support, TRIO plans and funds various social events and trips to local historical and educational sites. Some examples of recent past events are: LFCC's Got Talent, LFCC Dinner Theater, Mount Vernon, Smithsonian Institution Museums, National Aquarium, and more!
TRIO counselors work closely with LFCC disability services to provide the best opportunities for students seeking assistance or accommodations.
