Our advisors provide pre-registration advisement; drop/add counseling, referrals for tutoring and other areas, assistance in selecting a major, and assistance in developing realistic schedules and course loads.

Advisors and mentors are available to help you understand and cope with the challenges students face in college. They help participants transition to college, assist in major and career selection, and provide assistance in identifying opportunities and resources that will enhance student experiences.

All TRIO students are encouraged to use our free in-person tutoring services as well as utilizing SmartThinking, an online tutoring program located on your student portal.

Once students graduate, we help them transition into their new college environment by providing mentoring and advising.
