KVCC & Trio


The TRiO Programs were created in 1965 as part of the Higher Education Act.  Congress established these programs in order to provide educational opportunity to all Americans, regardless of race, ethnic background or economic circumstances.

What began as three programs in 1965 has grown to include eight college aspirations programs. Each TRiO Project has the same goal - access to education! Since that day in 1965, TRiO Projects have been helping students to not only enter college but to successfully complete college or transfer to a 4-year institution.

Our particular TRiO Project is known as a Student Support Services program and has been a part of the KVCC Community since 1993. We have provided services to hundreds of students and look forward to meeting you!

If you are interested in learning more about TRiO's history and programs available at the national level, visit the Council for Opportunity in Education (COE).
