Time and attention are two of the greatest benefits you’ll find when working with our TRiO SSS advisor. Students can meet with our advisor by appointment or by walk-in when available. Students are not limited to the amount of time they can spend discussing issues or special concerns. Many students will meet one-on-one with the advisor several times over the semester until their concerns are satisfactorily answered.
Career counseling is provided to help students assess occupational goals, develop strategies for success in achieving career goals, and motivate students to accomplish such goals. Professionally developed occupation inventory and interest instruments, administered by a full-time counselor, are used to assess students’ needs.
The TRiO lab is located across from the FPC library building. The lab has a tutor available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. TRiO SSS employs tutors in subjects that vary according to student needs. Tutoring can be obtained for every class offered on the FPC campus.
Ask a Tutor
The TRiO tutors are a dynamic group of qualified students who have demonstrated mastery of the subject areas they tutor. Most TRiO SSS tutors have previous tutoring experience and have worked extensively with the TRiO SSS student population. They are very approachable and receptive to questions, so there’s no need to be intimidated.
Academic and Financial Seminars
Group and individualized sessions are offered to students who would like to improve their financial literacy and/or study skills. Seminars are offered several times throughout the year and focus on core areas such as applying for FAFSA, and scholarships, and improving note taking, listening, test taking and other study skills.
