In 2016 Nassau Community College was awarded a total of $1.8 million over the following five years to continue its highly successful Student Support Services (SSS) TRiO Project. Our SSS TRiO Project is a federally funded outreach program designed to identify and provide specific academic support services to eligible students.
Our SSS TRiO Project provides Academic Support Services to qualified students who meet the federal SSS TRiO eligibility criteria. The Nassau Community College SSS TRiO project utilizes the proven strategies of Encouragement, Mentoring and Monitoring (EMM) to achieve a high rate of retention and persistence for SSS TRiO participants. The SSS TRiO project helps to ameliorates some of the academic barriers that qualified students daily by employing academic success strategies that have a proven record of facilitating a high rate of graduation and transfer to a four (4) year college.
