TRIO Veterans Student Support Services

The Program

TRIO Veteran Student Support Services (VSSS) is a federal TRIO Student Support Services program funded by a $272,364 grant administered by the  US Department of Education. TRIO VSSS is one of five Student Support Services programs located within the Center for Multicultural and Educational Opportunities at Boise State University. We offer a multi-faceted support unit—offering academic assistance and encouragement for our eligible students. Our goal is to help students earn their four-year degree and develop into scholars that are well prepared for their future careers and/or graduate programs.
