What is TRIO Student Support Services SOAR (SSS-SOAR) and Student Support Services STEM (SSS-STEM)?

TRIO Student Support Services SOAR (SSS-SOAR) and Student Support Services STEM (SSS-STEM) are free federal programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The programs support eligible CRC students, from traditionally underserved populations, in their academic, social, and professional pursuits.

SSS-SOAR supports CRC students across all majors, while SSS-STEM specifically supports CRC students in the fields of STEM: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health sciences. Both programs focus on increasing CRC’s retention, graduation, and transfer rates.
