TRIO Programs

Welcome to TRIO

The goal of TRIO is to assist qualified students in attending and graduating from college.

TRIO Student Support Services provides a supportive environment by assisting current Missouri State University students with tutoring, academic advising and study skills.

TRIO Upward Bound provides a college preparation program for Springfield high school students from Parkview, Central and Hillcrest.

Message from the Director: 

TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) participants, interested students, partners, and families; the TRIO office is open and ready to help! Due to the pandemic, some services will look a bit different. Our workshops, advising, and tutoring will often use a hybrid model. Students, you will have a choice of attending in-person or via Zoom. Our staff is working hard to create a positive and enriching experience for you. Please pay attention to your emails, this website, and social media. We are on Instagram and Twitter: @mostatetrio.  

For new students, you can apply to TRIO by dropping by the office for an application or print it from the website. We are currently accepting applications for the 2020-2021 academic year. 

We care about your health and safety. The TRIO office has sanitizing stations at the entrance and exit of the office. There are wipes available to clean that computer or workspace you plan to use; before and after. And should you forget your mask one day, we have you covered.  Please note that online scheduling for advisor appointments is now available on the TRIO website under the make an appointment tab.

I would like to invite you to the TRIO Student Support Services Orientation. You will learn about the changes, upgrades, requirements, and programming. Mark your calendar for September 9th @ 5:00 p.m. and September 10th @ 11:00 a.m. You only need to attend one session. They will both take place in Meyer Library, Rm 120.  

Have a wonderful year. TRIO Works!
