TRiO Model for Student Success

TRiO provides comprehensive support services and resources to our participants. Our primary goal is to increase graduation and baccalaureate transfer rates for our students and to foster an institutional climate supportive of the success of TRiO eligible students.  We do this by building student competency in academic preparedness, community engagement, financial literacy, and transfer readiness.  The following is a breakdown of programming we offer in those areas.

Advising, Mentoring, & Coaching,

TRiO provides top-notch, holistic, and intensive advising covering the following areas (Career, Personal, Academic, Degree, Transfer, and Financial Aid & Scholarship) that promote your success at Highline and beyond. In addition, our TRiO Advisors serve as mentors and coaches to support, encourage and hold students accountable for their goals.

Individual and group tutoring services are available primarily in English and Math. Many of our tutors also tutor other subjects.


Our workshops cover many technical topics that can be addressed in a 1hour session: Basic Study and Test Taking Strategies, Using a Graphing Calculator, Applying for Scholarships, etc.
