The TRIO SSS program mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access. Its two main purposes are to:

  • Increase the college retention, persistence and graduation rates of program participants; and
  • Foster a climate supportive of the success of students whose parents did not complete a four year college degree and/or are disabled and/or whose family income may hinder them from remaining in college without financial assistance to receive the full range of services and opportunities at UW-Milwaukee


Student Support Services Program (SSS) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education to provide academic support services for eligible students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Our SSS program is one of seven federally-funded, early outreach, student service programs from the Federal TRIO Grant Programs.

Other UWM TRIO Programs Include:

UW-Milwaukee is one of only eight universities nationwide that have all seven TRIO Programs! There are nearly 1,100 SSS programs nationwide with 28 in Wisconsin.
