How regularly do I meet with a TRiO Advisor?

First-year students meet with an advisor three times each quarter throughout the school year. They are assigned to a primary advisor to determine their learning strengths and challenges and devise an Academic Success Plan outlining the most appropriate services TRiO and the College can provide.

How do I connect with a Peer Mentor?

Cassie DeFillipo, TRiO Academic Advisor, organizes the Peer Mentor Program. Contact her by phone at 541-880-2264 or by email at Defillipo@klamathcc.edu.

If I’m a student with a learning disability, what documentation do I need to be a program participant?

Learning disabilities should be documented with disability accommodations. For more information about this, go to www.klamathcc.edu/Students/Disability-Accomodations

If I am a Veteran, should I provide proof of my Veteran status when turning in my application?

No documentation of Veteran status is necessary when applying to the TRiO program.

Is everyone accepted into the program?

No. As a Federal Program, TRiO can only serve a maximum of 140 students per year. Students should turn their applications in as early as possible in order to improve their chances of being accepted into the program.
