TRiO Student Support Services (TRiO/SSS)
The TRiO Student Support Services project at Finlandia University provides academic services to empower 180 qualifying students to articulate and achieve their personal, educational and career goals. TRiO/SSS is funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Education.
TRiO Student Support Services delivers a program of academic and personal support designed in partnership with the student. Services are designed to assure that participants persist from one academic year to the next and graduate with a bachelor degree.

Having financial need means that your individual or family's taxable income falls below the official federal income figure determined by family size.
Having a disability means that you have a documented physical or learning disability that may affect your role as a student.
