Welcome To Student Support Services
The SSS program originated with other TRIO programs in the Higher Education Act of 1965 and has been present on the Manoa campus since 1970. SSS offers individual, personalized academic planning and advising, special courses and other activities to support the retention and graduation of program students. Freshmen and new transfer students in all majors are encouraged to apply.
To be eligible you must be either a first generation college student (neither parent has earned a bachelors degree) or have financial need. Generally, you will be eligible if you have been awarded need-based financial aid from UH Manoa or from other need-based scholarship programs, such as Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate scholarship or the Hawaii Community Foundation scholarship programs. Even if you did not receive financial aid, you may still be eligible if you meet the income criteria.
