“The overall data analysis suggested that Student Support (TRiO) program services had a positive effect on increasing student’s two-year degree attainment, persistence to completion of an educational goal, certificate completion, and transfer to four-year University rates compared to those students who do not receive Student Support (TRiO) program services.”
