Stay up to date with upcoming TRIO SSS and Rio Hondo College events!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TRIO SSS and Rio Hondo College events are on hold until further notice. However, we are still holding all regular TRIO SSS services such as educational counseling and advisement appointments, as well as academic success and financial/economic literacy workshops.
Our scheduled campus visits for the Spring 2020 semester have been cancelled due COVID-19. These will be rescheduled once 4-year universities start to re-open. However, many colleges have virtual tours, so please keep researching those dream schools you’d like to transfer to in the near future! We can still help you plan and meet your transfer goals!
