The TRiO Learning Community (TLC) Program at New Jersey City University is known nationally as a federal Student Support Services (SSS) program. TLC is a federally-funded TRiO program that provides opportunities for academic development, assists students in meeting basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students towards the successful completion of their post-secondary education. Although nationally each program is different, we all share the same purpose: to retain and graduate the students we serve.
The program provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants and help students make the transition from one level of higher education to the next.
Projects include: instruction in basic study skills; tutorial services; academic, financial, or personal counseling; assistance in securing admission and financial aid for enrollment in graduate and professional programs; guidance on career options; mentoring and special services for students with limited English proficiency (LEP); and college scholarships.
TLC is a federally funded TRiO program committed to the success of first-generation, low-income, and/or students with disabilities. Our mission is to:
TLC participants graduate as polished and knowledgeable professionals ready to continue on to graduate school or as global citizens ready to conquer the competitive work force.
