TRiO Programs

Clovis Community College is proud to offer two free federally funded TRiO programs (SSS & STEM) that serve college students who are first generation, low-income, or have a disability. These programs help students meet their educational goals and objectives.

Student Support Services (SSS) and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs guide, mentor, and motivate students towards the successful completion of post-secondary education. In addition, we assist students to successfully complete a certificate, associate degree, and/or transfer to a 4-year institution.

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program provides specific opportunities for students pursuing majors in the STEM fields.
