Welcome to the Federal TRiO programs at Northwest

We are proud of our programs, the success of our students, and the support and encouragement we receive from our Bearcat family. Since 1986, Northwest TRiO Programs has had the opportunity to promote educational opportunities while assisting students in their personal journey of earning a higher education degree. The partnerships TRiO has within the Northwest campus community assist in addressing the unique needs of academically capable individuals who are first-generation students and come from families with limited income.

TRiO creates environments that inspire engaged learning, motivates continuing education, and supports lifelong learning. TRiO offers a comprehensive set of services through three different programs, each targeted at a specific group of individuals from 9th grade through adulthood. Services and activities include academic tutoring, cultural enrichment, financial assistance counseling, summer on-campus residential programs, admissions counseling, instructional assistance, and student mentoring.

Thank you for your interest and support of Northwest Missouri State University's TRiO Programs. We look forward to joining you in your journey.
