TRiO Home

TRiO is a federally-funded grant program provided through the U.S. Department of Education. Funds are awarded to institutions of higher education to provide opportunities for academic development, assist students with basic college requirements, and to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. At Berkeley City College, we provide academic support to students whose educational and socioeconomic backgrounds may prevent them from successfully attending college. To qualify, you must be: a U.S citizen or permanent resident; eligible for a Board of Governors’ grant; and educationally disadvantaged.


Services provided are: orientation, early registration, financial aid information, specialized counseling, academic planning, career guidance, academic progress monitoring, tutoring, university campus visits, transfer assistance, and workshops specially developed to increase the success of our students.
