TRiO is Open for Recruitment

SSS & STEM 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 in successfully completing 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.
