Core Curriculum

TRiO-Student Support Services provides assistance to qualifying students at UNM-Taos

Qualifying students are either:

  • From income-eligible families. (If you qualify for a Pell Grant you probably qualify for TRiO.)
  • Or who are considered First Generation to go to college. Our TRiO grant defines First Generation as meaning that neither parent has completed a 4-year college degree. (Students whose parents have completed Associate’s or Certificates still qualify as First Generation for our program.)
  • Or students who have a documented disability.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or meet residency requirements for federal student financial assistance.
  • Enrolled in either a Certificate or Associate Degree Program

As a federally funded US Department of Education grant program, a student must apply and meet eligibility guidelines to receive services from TRiO-SSS.
