College Achievement Now (CAN)/TRIO-SSS Program

The College Achievement Now (CAN) program serves students who are first generation, low income, and/or have a special need. The program is federally funded by the TRIO-Student Support Services program from the U.S. Department of Education (P042A150712).

CAN-TRIO is designed to 1) increase college retention and persistence; 2) provide student support to ensure good academic standing, and 3) increase graduation and transfer rates to four-year colleges and universities for underrepresented students. Participation in CAN provides students with academic advising; transfer assistance; career guidance; tutorial assistance; financial and economic literacy; cultural and university trips; assistance with financial aid, scholarships, job seeking opportunities; laptop, calculator, and book lending library; priority registration; and access to on-campus computers and printers.
