The TRIO program at Helena College is designed to help students discover a pathway to a 2 year degree or to transfer to a 4 year institution.

TRIO provides these core services:

  • Free Tutoring – Check it out!
  • Transfer Advising
  • Academic and Career Advising (Early registration)
  • Free Professional Counseling
  • FAFSA Assistance
  • Grants, Scholarship and Financial Literacy
  • Workshops (Academic, Career, Life Skills, Etc.)

The outcome from these services is to build life connections and skills, plus have experiences designed to develop individuals academically, personally and professionally. Success and independence are the goals for our participants.

TRIO is federally funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. We provide assistance to 140 active students every year that may come from every academic program at Helena College. To participate in the program, students must meet eligibility guidelines and be accepted through the application process.
