Student Support Services TRIO The Student Support Services (SSS) Program is a federally funded program designed to assist, support, and advise eligible students to successfully navigate the college experience and to increase retention and graduation rates of its participants. To be eligible for the program, a student must be officially enrolled at Gannon University, be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, and must meet federal income eligibility guidelines, be a first generation college student, or have a documented disability. Each student involved with the program is assigned a TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) advisor. Students will meet with their SSS advisor on a regular basis to address academic, financial, career or personal concerns. Together, they will develop an Individual Student Success Plan that will provide the student with the resources he/she will need to be a successful student at Gannon University.
