TRIO SSS at Boulder County Campus

Front Range Community College-Boulder County Campus is excited to have a NEW TRIO Student Support Services (TRIO SSS) program! As a part of the first cohort of students, you will not only receive personalized support, but you will also help us build a program that will help meet the needs of your fellow Wolves at FRCC-BCC. We will grow together as a family and set a strong foundation for future SSS Scholars!

What is TRIO SSS

TRIO SSS is a federally funded program designed to provide a community of support to students who are low-income, first generation college students, and/or students with documented disabilities. We provide wraparound services that promote academic, personal and professional growth, as well as assistance navigating financial aid and financial literacy. TRIO SSS provides a positive environment where SSS Scholars know their voice, experiences and dreams will be cultivated and inspired to grow.

TRIO SSS is here to support you with the services listed below. In order to keep our students and staff safe, BCC TRIO appointments will be done over the phone or through WebEx (video conferencing). You can schedule your appointment by emailing or calling your counselor directly.

  • Academic Support: Get assistance developing your academic plan and planning the courses you will take at FRCC, as well as access to academic tutoring services.
  • Transfer Assistance: Connect to resources at four-year institutions and go on campus tours to find which institution will be your next home after FRCC.
  • Financial Literacy: Receive guidance completing the FAFSA, understanding the financial aid process and finding scholarships. Attend workshops focused on topics that range from budgeting and savings to credit cards and the economy.
  • Career Exploration and Preparation: Connect with resources that will help you figure out what educational path you want to follow, as well as helping you take that next step into your career.
  • Wolf Success Workshops: Attend workshops on a variety of topics such as tips on being a successful student, resume writing, equity and inclusion, leadership development and more! We will always welcome topic recommendations from our Scholars too!
  • Cultural and Community Activities: Expand your comfort zone by participating in cultural and community activities that will increase your awareness of our global society. 
  • Mentorship: Connect with a Peer Mentor with shared experiences who can be a guide on your educational journey.

As a new program continuing to build our services, we are excited to have you submit your application to the program and start working with our amazing staff on your continued educational journey.  The BCC TRIO SSS program supports 140 students each school year.
