While the MSUB and City College SSS TRIO programs are similar, they are two separate, distinct programs.

The programs at each campus provide comparable services with the same mission and vision. However, students can only be a participant of the SSS TRIO program associated with their campus and can only receive services from that program’s campus/staff. If a student requests services from the program in which they are not a participant, they will be declined as the programs are not funded to serve the other program’s participants.
