SOAR 2014 Participants

What is Student Support Services?:

The Federal TRIO Programs (TRIO) are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Student Support Services (SSS) at California Lutheran University is a federally-funded grant program that provides assistance to first-generation and income-qualified students as well as students with disabilities. SSS is federally funded to serve 200 students throughout the academic year. The goal of SSS is to increase the retention and graduation rates of those students who are first-generation, low-income, and/or a student with a disability. The program focuses on promoting academic excellence by providing personalized services to students. SSS assists students in successfully graduating from California Lutheran University, and prepares those who are interested, to enter graduate or professional schools upon completing their Baccalaureate Degree.


The students who are selected for Student Support Services have the desire, commitment and drive to complete a baccalaureate degree. Please access our Program Services page to learn more about what SSS has to offer!
