LAVC TRiO Program Receives $1M Grant

The U.S. Department of Education has recently awarded LAVC a $1.1 Million grant to fund Valley College's TRiO/Student Support Services Program (TRiO/SSS) for 2015-2020.

TRiO/SSS is a program that is funded by the U.S. Department of Education to help low-income, first-generation and/or disabled students achieve a college education. Funds are awarded to institutions of higher education to provide opportunities for academic development, assist students with basic college requirements, and to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants.
