Student Success Programs

The Student Success Programs (SSP) at the University of Memphis provides assistance to students who are first-generation and/or low-income and/or have a disability to successfully obtain their bachelor’s degree. Services are designed to promote retention, persistence, loan debt minimization and timely graduation of participants.

SSP is made up of three programs:

TRIO Classic - Open to eligible* students pursuing all majors. This federally-funded program provides free academic, career, financial, personal, and social support to assist participants in adjusting to the rigors of college life, with the overall goal of graduating with a baccalaureate degree.

TRIO STEM - This federally-funded program provides the same support as the TRIO Classic program for eligible* students majoring in programs related to science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

First Scholars® – funded by a grant from the Suder Foundation, this 4-year program provides support to eligible, entering first-time, full-time freshmen who commit to living on campus and fully participating in the program. First Scholars® receive a $5,000 scholarship, renewable for up to three years.


*As a federally-funded TRIO program eligibility includes low-income (Pell-eligible), first-generation or student with documented disability.
