TRIO – Student Support Services

Dodge City Community College hosts a nonprofit educational program called Student Support Services (SSS), which is funded by the US Department of Education. SSS is designed to target college students who have the potential to succeed with their college endeavors and successfully transfer to a four-year institution. Because determining your future educational and career goals is not an easy process, the program provides professionally trained staff members to assist students making these decisions.
