Lake Region State College students have continued support for success thanks to a federal grant. The college has been notified of its selection to receive ongoing funding for its Student Support Services (TRiO) program. The TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) Program grant seeks to provide academic and general support services to low-income, first-generation or disabled college students in order to increase graduation rates, create a climate that will facilitate these students’ success and help them transfer from two-year to four-year colleges.
