How to Apply

​​Students may apply for the TRIO/Student Support Services program by obtaining a copy of the Student Support Services Application for Admission from the program office in Building 1, Room 210 on the DMACC-Urban Campus.

Before an application is released, student will be required to answer a series of questions in order to determine preliminary eligibility.

All applicants who meet eligibility requirements will be considered for admission. However, the program only admits a limited number of students each semester. Therefore, eligibility does not guarantee admittance.

Students must accurately complete the Application for Admission and provide all requested documentation before they are considered for admission.

Qualifying candidates will be invited to complete an Intake Interview. Once the Intake Interview is complete the candidate's Application for Admission and credentials are evaluated by the Program Director for final determination.

In preparation for the Intake Interview we ask candidates to review the program brochure and visit the TRIO/SSS website. These resources detail the services provided by TRIO/SSS and the expectations established for program participants.

Additional information regarding the Intake Interview may be found on the TRIO/SSS Intake Interview page.
